Term Spring 2020Professor Joseph P. Yurko Difficulty 2/5Quality 4/5

Dr.Yurko was an excellent teacher. Initially, you may find yourself a little overwhelmed with all of the math and statistics concepts, but if you dedicate the time to go through his slides, and do a bit of independent research, you will do fine. His homework assignments are in R, but most of the code is provided for you. His assignments are more about interpreting the data than the code itself.
