I mentioned in a thread on here almost a year ago now that I was considering making a change into math, after entertaining several other options and figuring out that I really enjoy math, and especially probabilty, I have decided to to move toward getting either another bachelor or a masters in statistics. The problem is despite my reading on my own about math, I have never taken anything formal beyond pre-calculus (I was an enormous slacker in high school, and had some other issues). I am confident that if I was placed in a calculus class I would be fine because I have picked it up fairly well with the help of a friend, and self study. That said where do I even begin with a completely unrelated degree, and hardly enough math to even work toward a bachelors? I mean can I test out of lower level math classes (by lower level, I mean necessary high school math). Could I go to a community college and work up? My goal is not to get into extremely heavy math like one who was getting their Phd would work on, but rather to have a job in stats for government or a private company. I assume this would have me taking multivariables, linear algebra, and up through calc 3, right? Thanks so much!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
