This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The class overall is tough for people who do not understand or like math.
Course highlights:
Statistics helped me understand research better
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Get a tutor, study a lot, form study groups
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Professor Zuniga, although he is a tough grader, helps the students by working through an example of each type of problem with everyone. He is willing to meet outside of class during his office hours to help everyone. I recommend his course because he makes a difficult subject appear like grade school homework to his students, leaving everyone more educated at the end.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course was most likely during the homework. The program used was very explanatory and clear. I was afraid at first when I went to take the class because I had never taken a statistics course before, but I learned so much in the short 4 months of the course and am better able to analyze data to reach conclusions.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed you must first complete the homework. Although attendance is not mandatory, I would recommend attending every class, especially the ones before the tests because the study guides are very helpful.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
If you are decently good at math, but not good enough for calc or any higher level maths, then I definitely suggest this class. If you took Finite Math then this class is basically the next step up and just goes into further detail on many of the teachings from Finite.
Course highlights:
You'll be learning a lot about standard deviation and variance (SD is a MAJOR CONCEPT), Z-scores, Union and intersection, permutation and combination, empirical rule, probability is a large chapter and part of this class, etc.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
If you are considering this course and you are not super bad at math, then I say take it. It is considered one of the easier math classes for students who are not on a STEM path. As long as you show up to class, do the homework, and study using the practice tests she gives you, you'll do great.
