Covers a lot of material pretty fast, but there isn't a ton of work that you have to do outside of class. Best combination possible. With Professor Karpman it was just 5 homework assignments, a take-home midterm, and a project. Professor Karpman no longer works at Middlebury, which is a tragedy, because she is the GOAT. If you're looking to take a coding-based math class that counts towards the math major, this is the course to take.

I took this class last spring so take my review with a grain of salt. However, I remember really enjoying it. It was not too difficult, and the material we covered was extremely useful. I would highly recommend this class.

An introduction to methods in statistical learning that focuses on practical coding skills in R. (The Machine Learning course in the CS department, I have heard, has a more theoretical focus, which honestly should be the other way around.) Weekly homework are basically mini-projects, with a big project and a midterm (also a mini-project, also in R). Slides were clear and the accompanying textbook was extremely helpful. The pacing was great, so there was not a rushed feeling despite a wide array of topics covered.
