So I have the option of taking Statistics for my senior year math and I was wondering if anyone here has taken or currently taking a statistics class. I know this is not a math homework question but it's about my math class and I just need some advice. I'm good with scatterplots and data but not very good with probability. I looked at the Khan Academy page of Statistics but I don't know if a Statistic class covers the same topics. It's my final year of high school and I just want an easy class especially since I'm not going to college. Is Statistics easy or very difficult? I know classes are different depending on the state but what topics were covered in a statistic class you took? Anything else you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and sorry again about the off-topic post.

If you were going to take statistics in college I would highly encourage you to take it in high school so that you would be more prepared for the college level class. But since you aren't going to college, then maybe don't take it.


(For me, statistics was pretty difficult in college. I think I found it so difficult because I never took it in high school. Whereas I found all my calculus classes not so difficult in college, and I do think that is in part due to the fact that I took calculus in high school. But of course I can't speak for everyone - I'm sure other people would find calculus much more difficult than statistics regardless of previous experience.) Tl;dr: College-level statistics is difficult for me, but that could be just be me.


Do you have to take a math class your senior year? What other options are there?
