One more semester over, one more semester closer to getting a real.
I've been on the statistics track at UALR for the past year and a half. I started as math but decided to change to statistics at the end of last summer. I've really been enjoying the different subject material. I particularly enjoy the way that it seems more applicable and useful in getting a job. I enjoy how it empower me to be able to analyze information and be able to draw conclusions from data.
This last semester I took Advanced Statistical Methods 1 (I'll be taking part 2 next semester), which taught me many of the various tests that statisticians use to hep make decisions. In Introduction to SAS, I learned how to program in SAS, which will enable me to perform calculations rapidly and easily, as well as transform data. In Financial Mathematics, I learned about many of the tools that financial people use to make money and insure against losses.
I had to teach 2 sections of Intermediate Algebra, which was a very eye-opening experience. Learning how to explain the concepts that I know so well is challenging. I don't even really know what to say.
