    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It isn't too much work, but study groups help a lot!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course can be quite scary of you do not already have a knowledge of basic statistics. My suggestions are to focus on having a growth mindset when you get tests back. It can be very discouraging when you miss a problem (or 15 in a row), but if you think about how each missed problem is an opportunity to learn and hone your skills, it is a little more manageable. Own your mistakes! They are not failures, but instead great opportunities for growth.

    Course highlights:

    Nothing will teach you more about standard deviations or bell curves than this course once you see test grades! Upon completion of the course you'll understand why most "stats" are completely bogus and how you can distort research/data to represent almost anything, with the proper type of statistical analysis. You'll also learn some great math party tricks

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take this course during J-Term. There is too much content to be able to create an appropriate foundation before you have to build on it. Also, go to every lab in person if you can and get help if you don't understand something right away.
