 07-17-2007 #7 devilsadvocate1728 Guest   Posts: n/a Generally, I would say that statistics is more complicated, hence more difficult, than trigonometry but statistics is also more useful in everyday life to nontechnical people. Trigonometry will be more useful in the (wood and metal) shop, engineering, and for those branches and levels of mathematics and science in which you will need calculus.

As said in other comments, it all depends on what you want. Trigonometry is more abstract than statistics but stats requires a lot of memorization and not really formulaic. BUT, trigonometry will get you farther ahead in the math. In real life, I only used stats a few times but not very often. I use trig every day for differential equations and special integrals.
