This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you like power points and not lectures, this is not the class for you! There is little to no class participation and you must learn the material on your own to understand the course and pass the tests
Course highlights:
I able to analyze simple statistical studies and peer reviewed articles
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Take easy classes that semester because you will need all the time you can get
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to any business, accounting or science majors because statistics is used throughout the majors and taking this course as a college freshman has benefited me in my other courses such as organismic biology and the corresponding lab.
Course highlights:
I gained how to calculate whether a hypothesis can be supported not only through data, but further content such as the p-value which can tell the researcher whether the data is significant or not. I also learned how to calculate probabilities and use online programs to calculate tables and graphs in which you can interpret the conclusion of the problem.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
I would advise you to keep up with the homework and ask questions if you don't understand because most likely someone else in the class has the same question. Also take advantage of your professor's office hours because they are really helpful one-on-one. Definitely organize your work and have a calculator with you at all times.
