There is NO algebra pre-req for stats at OU.I saw where someone posted about Stats @ Rio Salado...are they exams proctored>? Can you work at your own pace>>>
- 1Jan 11, '13 by enuf_alreadyQuote from rninmeYou are correct that OU requires NO algebra or math prerequisite. The last math class I took was in high school back in the 70s. My diploma program required pharmacology through the school of nursing which included math and drug calculations, but it was not a math class. It was also in the 70s. The actual math used in stats is not complex.

She is the prof in rninme's post I think.

There are 2 proctored exams. Not that difficult......you have to prepare, and practice the problems. Exams are open book and open note. If you take good notes and write out the steps in a way that makes sense to you, it is not too hard. I took my exams at my hospital library for free. - 0Feb 9, '13 by rninmeQuote from cincinursemaryTake good notes if you need to - I printed off the practice examples and explanations and worked them out. Also printed out the module assignments and worked those out also. Tabbed them - mod 1, mod 2, etc. I also tabbed sections of the books. Dr K lets you know how many points will be from each module on the midterm and on the final. Great class - and I HATE math!! The discussion board for each module is also a life saver. If you can't figure something out - ask your classmates. And the videos rocked!!The stats that I took was Elementary Statistical Reasoning, with Professor K.
