Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Fairbourn is an excellent teacher and goes above and beyond to help you understand the material by provided multiple sources and ways of learning.
Course highlights:
To be honest I took this class as a gen-ed requirement. My interest level in statistics is minimal, however I found myself enjoying the class and finding little ways that it actually applied to my life.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Take the time to truly understand what is going on. Watch all of the lectures and complete her study guides, they are set up just like her tests which is hard to find in a class now..
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The professor is amazing at teaching the course. She always used real-life examples of statistics to help understand concepts that seemed foreign. She outlined ways to succeed in class on the first day which helped me to do well.
Course highlights:
When we brought M&M's to class to learn about statistics. Also when she talked about elections and related them to statistics. I learned ways we can use statistics in everyday life and ways we can test when someone says is a true statistic.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to follow the professor's study tips she gives as well as try the sample tests that she gives you. The professor wants all of the students to succeed so if you feel like you are not doing well just go talk to her and she will help you out.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This is a good class for people who enjoy statistics (and spending a lot of time on it). But for anyone else, I would not recommend it, unless you have to take it for your major.
Course highlights:
I feel like I didn't really learn anything new that would be important to me at any point in my life. Some people might disagree though.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The main challenge is that this class includes two weekly lectures as well as two weekly recitations. That basically means class four times a week (two of which are quite long), which is more than a usual class. So my advice is: don't take this class if you're not willing to spend quite a bit of time. Honestly, I only ever went to recitation and I almost never went to the lecture, and that worked out for me.
