    I am taking stats and I'm not sure if it's the teacher or what but I'm confused. I think it's the combination of the teacher and the course. My teacher is new and is a first time teaching with college students. So he's really shy and nervous. And all of his office hours, I always have other classes. It sucks. So i'm completely confused. I can't even do my homework bc i'm so confused. I'm going to him tomorrow after class to get help. I'm sorry but this is crazy. I shouldn't get this frustrated just by doing my homework. Hopefully he will explain it better to me tomorrow. I hope you all understand it better than i do.

    I'm not sure if you are talking to me but if you are, i'm doing the different types of bar graphs and then the upper class and lower class. Then class boundaries. And frequency, then midpoint. I think i got the one problem right but when i went to do the next problem, I couldn't do it. I dont know what i'm doing wrong.

    I took stats in high school. Lemme tell you....MUCH EASIER! The teacher was also the wrestling coach so we didn't do anything during wrestling season. I'm glad I took it before college

    sure I don't mind being in the study group. so far this is our first week and it hasn't been that bad.

    okay, were working on probability, and some of the formulas are hard to understand. (Such as the conditional probability)

    Thought I might pass along this tutorial I found for Statistics: It is free to use and has a guy who talks and explains concepts, theories, and gives examples. The speaker does have a heavy accent, but I got used to it pretty quick.

    I am struggling in stats, so this has helped some to use along with the lectures and textbook.

    Good luck everyone

    I'm taking Stats now....we're having our midterm in 2 weeks when we get back from spring break. I absolutely love this class! Which is weird for me, because I usually struggle with math. I actually got an A on our last exam...I've never gotten an A in my life on a math test!!!:hatparty: I was usually lucky if I could even get a C. I don't know if it's my professor or what, but this class is very interesting so far. I will admit though, you definitely have to pay's very easy to fall behind.

    I keep seeing this sticky...every time I do I thank GOD, that I already have it done and over with. I took it last semester....and survived.
    To everybody that is taking it now....keep up the good work..."keep your chin up"....."get er done" and you to will be able to think the same thing when you see this sticky.

    So how would you say statistics is? Easy, Hard, Challenging, Bored, etc. Does it require background knowledge?

    Blove- You'll probably have different opinions from people about Statistics, but I think it's the most interesting math class I've ever taken. I wouldn't exactly call it EXCITING, but it's been easier for me to pay attention in Statistics then in other math classes in the past. This is coming from a person who HATES math. As long as you understand the information and the formulas, the math itself isn't too hard at all.
