I am really enjoying this class, and would recommend it to anyone looking to learn statistics. I am concurrently enrolled in Calculus, and I find comparisons of these two classes interesting. I find the professor very engaged and working very hard to provide excellent teaching. The material is well thought out and clearly presented. It looks to me like there are challenges for a statistics teacher that are different from those faced by a calculus teacher. The repetition of calculating calculus problems provides a sense of "learning the material" for me that I don't feel as strongly in this course. The weekly labs in R are great; I just think it is harder to master the material when you are "evaluating output." There are two minor issues I have with the class, and they are really just personal preference. First, the professor stays away from greek symbols opting instead for abbreviations such as SD for standard deviation. The second issue is that all of the data appears to be made up. With all the open data, it would be more engaging for me to work with real datasets. I love the class tho and recommend it highly - particularly for someone looking for a review of statistics or a second look at the material with an R perspective.
Like many others, I love this class. The teaching and resources provided are amazing. I feel that I am really learning Calculus. I have always felt I had a fairly high aptitude for math, and I find this class very challenging. The professors don't shy away from difficult material, but they do provide lots of opportunities to learn.
I absolutely loved this course. The professors set the bar high for other MOOC's. The assignments, lectures, and teaching were top notch.
