    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor had mostly good days but did have some bad days. Most days he would go into great detail about the steps for each problem we reviewed, while other times, he would expect us to already know the material and get annoyed if people asked questions about the material.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were that, with this professor, the homework was not difficult to follow because the textbook was pretty easy to follow.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to put a lot of time into studying. the course itself is a difficult course and if you procrastinate and do not study, it makes it all the more difficult.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Statistics is a very important class whether one likes math or not. Math is a way of thinking and having a decent understanding of statistical principals is helpful not only in an academic setting, but also in everyday life. If someone points to a spurious connection between vaccines and autism for instance, I, knowing very little statistics, immediately can tell that correlation does not equal causation and therefore will be skeptical of any causal relationships people assert. Just this little bit of knowledge can help someone be a more informed citizen.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was seeing how helpful it can be to know basic statistics concepts. It was also enjoyable because I like a challenge and some statistics concepts are not intuitive. It taught me to be patient and pay attention to detail. These habits will also be helpful in other areas of my life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention to detail and don't be afraid to be resourceful and use Google to supplement what you learn in class. Anyone can learn and excel in statistics, it just takes time and effort. Don't get discourged! Your mentality can be your biggest obstacle. Knowing how to study is also helpful. The book Make It Stick, The Science Of Successful Learning by Peter C. Brown and others is great if you have trouble with study techniques or need a good source on how to retain what you've studied.
