Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This is a great course for people who need a math requirement but don't like math much. I call it "math for English majors" because mostly statistics is about conceptual analysis and vocabulary. Most of the math is basic arithmetic applied to higher-level concepts. This professor, in particular, is really good at explaining concepts and has structured the course in such a way as to give you every advantage he can.
Course highlights:
I gained a much better understanding of statistics. I'd never taken a statistics course before, though I had learned a little in a math survey course. After taking this course last year, I now tutor for it with my school because I remember it quite well. The concepts are that clear and easy to understand.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Take good notes. A lot of this is vocabulary definition and conceptual work. Work on identifying keywords in problems and tying them to the right processes. Practice all the examples in the textbook and on the practice tests. If you can do the practice tests, you can do anything.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
This class is required for majors in the school of science and humanities as it gives you a basic overview of statistics
Course highlights:
You will learn about different types and methods of data collection, mean, standard deviation, and how to describe the distribution (center, spread, unusual features, shape), and probabilities.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Try coming to most of the classes prepared and already knowing the content. Make sure to study before class if needed. The clicker questions are pretty easy if you pay attention and understand it. It makes up a huge part of your grade. The lecture slides are exactly like the textbook, so don't freak out if you didn't write everything on time, everything you need to know is in the textbook. The textbook is pretty self-explanatory and easy to follow. For tests, always do the practice questions in the textbook by yourself, and familiarize yourself with the sample tests that are released on blackboard. The sample tests are old tests and are VERY similar to the tests that you will be taking for each unit.
