Decent math elective. Contrary to the other reviews, I found that the class got quite a bit easier toward the second half. I have the impression that most of the class bombed the first midterm, and after that Becky seemed to make homework assignments shorter and exams easier. The teaching style is somewhat puzzling in that it is (supposed to be) a flipped classroom but also is not really a flipped classroom because 80% of the in-class time is a lecture. You come into class having read the textbook and/or watched a pre-recorded lecture (from a Harvard professor), and then Becky sort of lectures about the same content again and gives you about 10 minutes to work on problems with a small group. The format is not necessarily bad, and I feel like I learned a good deal from the course. That said, there are some obvious improvements to be made.

Professor Tang used a flipped classroom but still incorporated lectures with the in class group work. Problem sets were very challenging but exams were not as bad. Professor Tang is very accommodating and willing to help students. However, she doesn't always give complete feedback in the way that she wants you to figure out the solutions yourself when revising which isn't always the best because problems were difficult to begin with so more guidance would be beneficial.

Becky is awesome! If you are interested in statistics this is a great class to take. The class is mainly problem sets based off of the labs and lectures. The class is very code heavy (in R), so maybe stay away if you don't enjoy coding in R.
