It has been almost 9 years since I have taken a math class. This semester I have enrolled in Y502 which is Intermediate Statistics. With a new year and a new semester, I have resolved that I need to have a new attitude towards quantitative research. There has been some hidden and somewhat unhidden fear about taking statistics due to the absence of math in over the past few years. However, I really need to grow in my inquiry skills and look forward to what will come of this new knowledge. The first day of class included a sort of “pre-test”, that I thought was a pop quiz. I freaked out and thought I performed horribly. Yet, I proved myself wrong and did fairly well. I know it will be challenging, but the Spring semester of 2011 will be great!
