I have never like any math class in my entire life. Not only did Ray make Stats interesting, but I did fantastic on all of his tests, too. If you have to take a stat class, TAKE RAY'S CLASS!

Extremely good professor. His teaching style is very methodical. Makes stats interesting and relevant by throwing in stories. Clearly very experienced. Take him before he retires!

I had this professor for both stat 1200 and 1300 - he was excellent. Incredibly sweet man, although the material isn't always interesting he makes everything very easy to understand and is a nice person to be around. There is homework due each class, but it honestly takes maybe 10 or 15 minutes. Highly recommend him

He is a good professor, but the only thing you should be careful about is doing work on time and arriving to class on time! Those few points that you miss might create problems for you in the end so plan on going to class everyday and doing your homework! I thought the projects were boring but overall the class wasn't too bad

Possibly the most boring class of all time. I think i fell asleep every single day.You have a ton of homework and projects and you have to be on time to class or else he wont take your homework and you miss the first quiz. Dont take this class if your thinking it will be easy

Ray is wonderful! I had serious math anxiety before taking his class and he cured it. He goes step by step and makes sure everyone understands before moving on. Make sure you're present and on time though!

Boersma is good but he has a clear tradeoff: he's a great guy who is pretty funny and will make sure that you know stats by the time you leave, but he's also going to give you tons of busy practice work. by the time that the test comes, you'll know almost exactly what is on there. He's pretty strict if you're late (won't let you turn things in.)

Great teacher. If you go to class and pay attention there's not one stat concept you wont understand. He explains thing perfectly and tells you exactly what it takes to get a good grade. There is a decent amount of work. If you're a BUSINESS or STAT major take this professor.

Ray is the man! I am taking this class for the Summer interterm (8am-5pm for 5 days), and yes it's a long amount of time but not bad at all! He wants us to get high grades and has always been available. Yes there are a lot of little exercises one must complete, but it the grading this way is better than tests worth 30% of your grade

Very Very good teacher. A lot of work, but it pays off as you do learn a lot. If you are remotely lazy, DO NOT TAKE this class, but if you want a high quality statistics class at DU, this is your guy. If you go to class and do the work, its not hard

Class is not bad but notes are needed as you do define many statistical terms. Net surfing is very commonplace in this class. Lots of projects.

He is helpful somehow. But you have to do a lot of homework and project. There are four paper based test and a final. Not an easy class.
