Comments on the course

Took it Summer A and got a 96. You could get Study Edge, but Stine's lectures are so thorough with so many practice problems, you don't even need it tbh

Course Content

Great foundation for future stats classes. This class, unlike AP stats, focuses on practical applications, mainly through the mini projects which are super fun and useful.

Comments on the professor

Stine is the best, she's so kind and responds extremely fast to inquiries.

Advice

Just watch the lectures and put in the time.

Stine is an excellent teacher, but I honestly just used Study Edge to help me learn everything faster. However, you do not need Study Edge to get a good grade in the course.

Comments on the course

Tests were tricky with their wording but overall, not impossible to get an A on every one. There is a lab portion where you must go to a lab every week and do a short lab activity, it's not very hard.

Comments on the professor

She really wants people to succeed and is very good at making her expectations clear. You will know exactly what it going to be on the exams.

Advice

Don't buy the textbook. Make friends with the people you sit next to in lab in case you have a question. Watch lectures on 1.6x speed. Do all the practice exams!!!

Comments on the course

Having never taken a stats course before, I was a bit nervous going in. Luckily, the content was very interesting and applicable to real life, something I value heavily in a math class! The content could be tricky, but never got to be over-the-top challenging. Also, the textbook wasn't required which was really nice because honestly the notes you get to fill in cover everything you need to know. There were 3 lectures a week and a quiz for each lecture, but basically if you listened at all you were guaranteed to pass the quiz. The quizzes and tests were multiple-choice, and if I recall correctly non-cumulative. The "labs" are also pretty easy, just extension exercises to apply stats to the real world.

Comments on the professor

Dr. Ripol was fantastic, she explained stats in a way that really made sense. I liked having the recorded lectures (maybe only due to COVID, not sure) because I could rewind the parts that didn't make sense. Also, she provided us with past exams to study, so nothing on the tests was a huge surprise.

Advice

Study the practice exams, do the labs and quizzes on time, do the extra credit assignments.

Comments on the course

The course difficulty wasn't that bad and her preparatory content did help. The main issue I had is severe ADHD that led to me missing a bunch of quizzes, homework, and not listening to lectures. I have no clue how I managed to get a B-, but I do remember some stuff from the class now that I'm using it in another class, so I'd say that you do learn stuff from the class. Stats as a topic is boring but I think this class definitely was alright.

Advice

This is probably very basic advice to students who don't suffer from a cripplingly short attention span but TURN IN ASSIGNMENTS. As long as you do and turn in assignments you'll be able to learn the content, since statistics is fairly straightforward.

Comments on the course

Professor Stine was the best!! She had practice homework *NOT GRADED* and would give us practice exams that bettered my understandings and helped me do significantly better on her exams. Practice Exams were similar to her real exams. Her lectures are easy to follow. Stine made a study guide and would annotate it with us. Like who does that?! She gives you multiple extra credit opportunities. Overall 10/10 because I wish every class at UF was like this. Smokin Notes not needed at all.

Comments on the course

I dislike math, and didn't have a very good teacher in high school, so take what I say with a grain of salt. I had a very stressful time in this class, but was able to scrape by with a C with the help of a tutor. Being that it was in the summer, the workload was super heavy, and lasted around a month (despite the 6 weeks that were advertised).

Comments on the professor

This is kind of tricky to answer, because the professor is not the person that I watched in the videos. I will say though that she seemed like a quality teacher in her introduction video. She also provided extra credit, and was pretty fair with the scoring.

Advice

If you aren't good at math, I would advise a tutor. If you're fine at it, or went to a high school that actually taught you anything math-related, I'm sure you'll be fine.

Suggest a professor

Stine is the only teacher that I am aware of (of course this was done online and over the summer), so I suppose I have no other choice but to choose her.

Easy as long as you do all of the practice exams before the real exams

Advice

You must do the practice questions/exams. Study Edge/Smokin Notes can be helpful but definitely not necessary in my opinion.
