This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would highly recommend this course. Mrs. Dupree was a great teacher, and the material was interesting yet still rigorous.
Course highlights:
The math was not the highlight despite it being a math course, the highlight was the critical thinking aspect of the class. The sudden breakthroughs on a challenging topic felt exciting and refreshing.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Be sure to do the work in class, and write everything the teacher stresses. Take the textbook home to review over.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This class is such a unique course that is different than any other course I've taken. It explores topics that explain practical use of data analysis that we don't realize in our daily lives. Although it involves many calculations, the math itself is not difficult: it is mostly just numbers.
Course highlights:
Often the curriculum covers probability which means doing activities with candy!! These activities taught lessons on sampling and helped visualize concepts.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Any student interested in realistic word problems and math would most likely enjoy this course. If you are interested in numbers and surveys and wonder how they calculate such numbers, this class answers those questions. It is such a useful course that has helped me on standardized tests, understand math topics, and gain insight to how data is processed.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This was definitely a difficult class and it requires students who can solve complex problems and pay close attention to details. These are useful skills to have.
Course highlights:
Many statistical concepts previously unknown to me were thought. I particularly like the chi square unit.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do not take short cuts in the writing, but do not write more than you have to. Your explanations have to be basically perfect, and both of those mistakes will increase your chances of error.
