Using Quantitative Methods to Understand Social Problems and their Potential Solutions
Winter 2020 - This class started out very rough and unorganized. The professor would move through material very fast and the assigned homework would not follow the same material as the one presented during lecture. However, she did listen to our concerns as a class and made some adjustments to help us succeed. There is an in-class midterm and final, in addition, there are problem sets assigned throughout the quarter which involve R Studio (no R Studio material is covered in lecture). The problem sets are much more complicated than the midterm and final but they do help when studying. I think the main problems with the class was the grading process and the way it was organized. Our respective TAs did not grade our work so when going to office hours it was sometimes useless because their help was not sufficient sometimes if another TA graded our homework.
