MATH 110 Elementary Statistics
- Plan to study outside of class at least 6 hours each week, or more if it has been a while since you have taken a math class.
- Study actively by doing practice problems, making note cards, and making study guides.
- Attend professor's student hours (office hours) and math support centers regularly.
- Form study groups with other students in class and try to explain problems as you do them.
Statistics is a powerful branch of mathematics that relies on critical thinking and analysis – skills that you will hone through data exploration and collaboration. Any field of study that you could possibly think of, from nursing to animal science to English literature, uses statistics in one way or another. They are all around us, guiding our work and informing our decisions.

Anyone can learn statistics! It is not a skill set that one is either born with or
not. YOU are capable not only of learning statistics, but also of excelling in statistics!
