I enjoyed the 6 hours of Stats you taught. Very well prepared, very well presented. You have it organized better than anyone could possibly do. I saw things so much more in perspective than I remember. You are teaching to an exam, which is exactly what the students want. 90% of them are only interested in surviving the material. The chap that I was there with is very much in that position.

I studied another area of math, and took probability, statistics, game theory, etc. all as electives, instead of arts courses, which I really did not like.

One suggestion. Teach your course a little earlier, before exams begin, so they have time to digest it. In this way, they won't be plugging and playing as much, maybe there will actually be some real understanding, and hopefully some more appreciation for the subject. I do not quite understand the Business faculty's emphasis on math as much as it certainly seems, because I have taught both Calculus and Linear Algebra to my players. Also, it seems over the years the math skills of those that I have helped are going in the wrong direction, they are getting weaker, not stronger.

Any of my other players who find themselves in the position of having to take this course, I will be referring them to your efforts. Do you teach the first half part, if so, it maybe useful for them to see that also? What are you doing as a student/academic yourself? I certainly hope you plan on instructing. You are good!

If you would like to use this as an endorsement, please do so.

Thanks Paul! Each semester I take a look at the exam schedule and do my best to hold the review sessions when there are no other 2nd year ADM exams. My preference is to hold the reviews 7-10 days prior to the stats exam, but sometimes the exam schedule does not let me do so. All the Best!

Hi Mike,

So the stats marks are in, and I just thought I'd let you know that I went from an F to a B. I just wanted to thank you for your time and assistance in this difficult class, I don't think I could have done it without your help.

Thanks again!
