Great Intro to the Subject
Go to Office Hours
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Yes I would recommend it. This class is mostly required for majors. You also get to use statistical computer softwares and computer applets to analyze data and explore new concepts.
Course highlights:
Graphical and numerical descriptive measures. Simple linear regression. Basic probability concepts, random variables, sampling distributions, central limit theorem. Large and small sample confidence intervals and significance tests for parameters associated with a single population and for comparison of two populations. Use of statistical computer software and computer applets to analyze data and explore new concepts
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Study. Watch lectures. Attend office hours
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
To be honest, if you do not need to take Statistics or math is a subject weakness this class may be very difficult to understand. I had a very hard time with this this specific class. I would dedicate at least 6 hours each day to study, review my notes, watch the lecture video twice, and to complete many math problems without frying my brain. I honestly would not recommend this class unless it was required to. I had to take it because my major(Criminology) required it, but if your major does not need it then stay away from Statistics.
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course was improving my logical skills. I had to learn mathematically to reject data if there was not enough evidence. This subject dealt with null and alternative hypothesis.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
I highly recommend that you visit your professor office hours to help you understand a topic that you are struggling with. Please do not procrastinate or late night cramming before the exam because it will do no good. I had to learn the hard way myself. It is extremely important that you do the actual practice exams that are given.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Unless this is a required course for your major, I would pass. No wiggle room for mistakes.
Course highlights:
Statistics is about extracting meaning from data. In this class, I learned techniques for visualizing relationships in data and systematic techniques for understanding the relationships using mathematics.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Plan on not missing any classes, joining study groups, and doing all homework. Intense studying for quizzes.
