This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The professor was way, way too hard. Hardest class I've ever taken.
Course highlights:
I learned a great deal about stats and probability theory. A lot of it actually was quite interesting and eye-opening, but it was too harshly graded to be worth it.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Don't slack off at all. You think the first material is easy, but it gets so much harder so quickly.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I loved the course material. All statistical concepts learnt through the course is applicable in practical situations.
Course highlights:
I gained knowledge on all the possible statistical distributions and applications of probability in the real world.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do take MATH 215 (Calculus 3) before taking this course as it is an advisory prerequisite and the professor assumes that you have some knowledge on multivariable calculus.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I really enjoyed the concepts covered in the class, and thought that the topics were interesting. The professor was good as well, although hard to understand at times.
Course highlights:
We spent the most time on Random variables (both continuous and discrete) and learned how to manipulate them. We learned how they can work together, how co-variance and correlation are related, as well as how to tackle many traditional probability problems.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Understand and study hard for the first half, as if you don't understand the basic material the harder stuff is next to impossible.
