This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course is difficult but the professor provides the best material you could find to complete the course successfully! It's important to stay on top of each weeks work, because it could be easy to fall behind fast.
Course highlights:
I mainly learned how to apply more of the math concepts I have learned in the past. Stats is a lot of formulas and I don't think anyone would need to memorize them. You just need to know how to apply them.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
It's necessary to study weekly and the course requires around 12 hours a week to be successful. I recommend taking it during a lighter semester or maybe in the summer so you can really focus on the content.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend this course, along with the professor, because I have never understood math so thoroughly before now. Dr. Fernando goes through all of the curriculum in such a way that the whole class is able to understand. She helps you grasp every concept and leaves room for people to ask questions.
Course highlights:
This course helped me learn a plethora of ways to predict probability. The course defined the difference between finding the probabilities of samples and populations, and explained how to tell what you were sampling. It also allowed me to connect the criteria that I learn in class to real life events.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
I would advise students to make sure they get the calculator that the prof recommends because different calculators are formatted differently and it will cause students to be behind because she shows the commands for a TI-84. I would also recommend that they ask questions when they have them and start the homework as soon as possible because it will be more beneficial when it comes to studying for the exams.
