MATH

This is a good class to take for non-math majors who would like to gain some knowledge in basic statistics, hypothesis testing, probability, etc. There's weekly homework but shouldn't take up too much time. There's two mid-terms and one final exam, but as long as you pay attention in class, these should not be too difficult. I took this class as preparation for my research in graduate school and all of the materials turn out to be useful!

This is one of my favorite math classes at Middlebury. Peterson's lectures are fun and easy to follow, and he is always available for office hours. There are three exams, all of which are manageable after practicing the old ones. I also appreciate the fact that this course is very rarely interfered by technology (R, Latex, etc.) so that one can enjoy the beauty of the content instead of being bothered by coding. Peterson only made us to use R a few times when it was absolutely necessary for understanding the concept.

Professor Peterson knows the content and how to teach it (and is passionate about it). The class is fast-paced and the tests are hard but his grading system provides some leniency. An important subject, it's worth taking the class if you are up for it.
