Hear What MATH 1005 Students are Saying

It was worthwhile taking statistics from UNE as it allowed me the time to understand the material because of the self-paced format, as opposed to feeling pressured being in a strict, in-class setting where if I didn’t understand something, I’d fall behind dramatically.

My instructor was patient, kind, very helpful, and very responsive. If it were not for her, I would have done far worse in this class.
