I am weighing the option of taking a statistics class instead of a calculus class next fall. What are the pros and cons of going on this route? I've done a year of calculus so I would probably have no trouble with the class, but I want a change of pace math-wise. Thankfully I know some basic statistics as well, so it shouldn't be too bad.
How are the stat classes at UW-- any profs to avoid (I can't find many on rankmyprofessor.com)? Would you suggest STAT 220 Basic Statistics or STAT 311 Elements of Statistical Methods?
