This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Professor Tanguay is the best person you can take this course with, in the summer or otherwise. He's helpful and as long as you put in the effort you will do great in his course. Don't skip assignments and show your work as best you can for a good grade. Homework questions are in the back of each chapter, but the book only gives answers to odd numbers. Remember to check other questions for examples if the answer is not provided to the one you're assigned.
Course highlights:
I learned how to run statistical tests, and how to understand the statistical studies that you see everyday in new articles and social media.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
This is a time consuming course, and it will be frustrating. It is not math-heavy, but interpreting the questions and understanding what you are supposed to do can be difficult. Give yourself lots of time to do the homework and put as much effort as you can into getting all of the assignments done. Ask questions early, because in the summer semester there is a homework assignment due every day.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I took an online version of the course because I have previously taken a statistics class, so I did not really need to take it in class. However, Dr. Naylor-Tincknell is a great instructor in any class you have her in regardless of online or not.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot about ANOVA, which I had not heard of before.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you understand how to do the equations before you move on.
