Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Statistics was a very interesting course, as it was not a typical math class. There was learning formulas and other typical math stuff involved, but it was really interesting to look at the way statistics function in the world around us and use formulas and tests to determine whether or not a study can be considered true or not. The class provided a new take on numbers and formulas to help analyze the world around us.
Course highlights:
I learned how to conduct varying types of tests on different sets of data to find correlations between the data and to prove if the data could be considered true or not. Additionally, we did several poster projects, one of which was entered in the Pennsylvania State Statistics Poster Competition.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Be prepared to look at numbers in a whole new way, and be prepared for lectures. Always do the homework and participate in class.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would, statistics is one of the many math areas not many people are completely interested in. It allows not only to see whether an article is telling the truth, but it helps with understanding more complex problems in mathematics.
Course highlights:
I have understood more than the average math student, i'm learning about how to understand permutations, a more complex form of standard deviation, disjoint events, and independent events. Not only will this help me more in the math field, but it helps in other fields as well, including Psychology.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Take your time, inside and out of class to really understand the material. It's worth knowing, it'll help me when I grow older to understand articles, if the probability of something happening is exact to what the piece is implying, you'll be able to understand more than what's present by taking time for yourself, and with your teachers, or past administrators.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Fun class with not a lot of work. Mr. Davy really teaches you well and for an AP class it is really easy
Course highlights:
The overall project is great because it is one cumulative year long project encompassing everything you've learned and it really helps to give meaning to what we learned.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Pay attention to the review power point and ask questions on tests if you are unsure
