Date: Fri, 28 Aug 2009 12:01:51 -0500 (CDT) From: Bob Wardrop <wardrop@stat.wisc.edu> To: Lecture 1 Stat 371 <stat371-1-f09@lists.wisc.edu>, Lecture 2 Stat 371 <stat371-2-f09@lists.wisc.edu> Cc: Richard Chappell <chappell@stat.wisc.edu> Subject: Welcome to Stat 371 Greetings. I am teaching both lectures of Stat 371 this fall, even though some computer sites say that Rick Chappell is teaching lecture 1 of 371. Thus, in particular, do not purchase the text listed for Rick’s section; both sections will be using the text written by me. If you are not able to find a copy of my text, don’t worry; I will discuss this issue the first day of class. Rick is a really good teacher with lots of expertise in biostatistics (applications of Stats to human medicine). Current plans--as told to me--are to have Rick teach a section of 371 in the Spring. Thus, you might consider dropping 371 now to take it with Rick in the Spring. But remember that plans for intro courses very often change. There will be another email soon giving you the reading assignment for the first lecture, Thursday, September 3. Finally, two items; the first of general interest and the second for those concerned about their lecture and/or discussion sections. 1. Discussions do NOT meet next week, the week of August 31--September 4. They will begin on September 8 and 9. (As I recall, all of our discussions are on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays.) 2. Several persons have written to me concerning a desire to change discussion and/or lecture. My general advice is: don’t worry about it. Don’t try to drop/add to get the section you want, b/c even if it looks available, it is possible that after you drop and before you add, the vacancy will disappear. If this disappearance occurs there is nothing I or anybody else can do to get you back into the course. As the lecturer, I don’t care which lecture you attend. At this time I cannot categorically PROMISE anything about discussions b/c they are taught by TAs and I have not yet been assigned my TAs. In the past, HOWEVER, it has always been possible to allow students 1

to attend a different discussion if the registered discussion is impossible. I will talk about this more on the first day of class. Thanks for taking my class. I am looking forward to a mutually rewarding and instructive semester.
