This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Mathematical Statistics is a much more intensive and thorough overview of statistics as opposed to the introduction to statistics course. Whether you are a math oriented person or not, this class is still beneficial and do-able. Being able to apply statistics, like probability and chance, to every day occurrences is a priceless skill.
Course highlights:
We learned how to use statistics in every day life. This course was a great overview of basic statistics. Learning about probability, the normal and standard normal curves, and the numerous applications both of these topics have was the most beneficial. Math majors and non-math majors both enjoyed this class and were able to take something away from it.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You must attend class and pay attention during class lectures. Your time will be wasted if you are not actively engaged during class lessons and you will fall behind quickly. Stay on top of new material and visit the professor during office hours if you need help or have any questions. I learned a lot more during office hours than I ever could have trying to struggle through problems on my own. You must also fill out the given worksheets in class. They will help you tremendously on the homework and are a great study aide for tests.
