    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a great set of knowledge, especially if you're looking into the statistics world. It gives you all the necessary information and the teacher for this class at my school is spot on. I was never confused and he always left me ready and urgent to know more.

    Course highlights:

    Going into this class, I knew NOTHING about statistics! I learned probably all there is to know, including probability, see which is why I used the word "probably". The biggest highlight though would have to be it's instructor/teacher Mr. Jackson. He just knew exactly what to teach and exactly HOW to teach it, which cannot be said for every teacher.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for Excel! If you've never heard of it, learn to because it makes up a TON of this course. Luckily, there isn't too much hands on math because of this and it is overall easy. However, start learning how it works because Microsoft Excel makes up this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There is always something new happening in this course, but at the same time, it forces you to remember everything. It is also the first math course that I have felt I will actually use for the rest of my life. You never hear people asking our teacher, when will I use this? People in my class already know that everything we learn from stats will be used in the real world. I would recommend it because it is just a great example what the real world will be like and how math is actually really helpful. I am a person who does not like math and I loved this course.

    Course highlights:

    The major highlights of this course were in the deeper meaning of everything we learned. For example, in the unit discussing experimental probability and observational probability, we learned the major differences that can occur when discussing probability. Things like bias, randomness, and repetition were all major things that could be done with these things to make probability exist or not exist. This was just one of the many highlights of the course that helped us all understand how Statistics is a major part of the real world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course, you cannot get frustrated with yourself. You have to take your time and just remember there is a logical way to find the answer. Stats is all about combining your English skills and your understanding of numbers, percents, and fractions and ratios. Everything you do needs to be taken step by step and you will honestly be fine. Just do not rush and relax during the course. Once you start making the first few connections, the whole course gets easier. So, be patient, and enjoy the fact the numbers make sense and do not equal letters like in calculus. It is a great course that will honestly help you in the real world.
