Oh Math people...

Say you hate math. With a flaming purple passion. But you have to complete one more semester of it in order to fill that portion of your requirements for your AA. (Your area of studies is in humanities, religion, mythologies, nothing really math oriented.)

Here are your two options:
Nature of Mathematics - Mathematical reasoning with additional topics selected from number systems, number theory, computers, probability, statistics, mathematical modeling. Recommended for liberal arts and elementary education students. (MATH10)

~OR~

Elementary Statistics with Computer - Computer investigation, exploration and simulations of concepts in statistics: descriptive statistics, probability theory, central limit theorem, estimation, hypothesis (parametric & non-parametric), confidence intervals, correlation and linear regression, analysis of variance. (MATH15)

Which would you go for?
Any stories about either class? Warnings before I take one or the other?

Yes, those are my two options. You couldn't pay me to take Calculus. I barely made it through Algebra II on my third try (lets not even talk about Algebra I). I have to get this over and done with in the Spring. It's like ripping off a band-aid, me and my math requirements. I've been slowly peeling it off for years now and I've just got to rip the damn thing off.
