CEE 304  -  Uncertainty Analysis in Engineering Homework #2 Due:   Monday, Sept. 3, 2007,  at CEE_304 lecture . Read:   Sections of Devore 2.1-2.5 for this week.  Please start thinking about problem # 106 <D6 104> after Wednesday’s lecture . Goal:   Devore Chapter 2 introduces the mathematical formulation of probability.  This  homework addresses that material.  The last problem is harder.  It is an opportunity to  test your understanding more deeply; you must recast a “real” problem into a form  that you can solve. The  ActivStats  assignment from chapter 15 looks ahead to introduce the idea of a  random  variable  which will be developed in lectures 5-8 and in Chapter 3 of Devore.   ActivStats  assignment in chapter 14 is mostly fun. ASSIGNMENT Page numbers are for Edition 7 of Devore. ADD 10% for Edition 7 page numbers. Problem numbers are for both editions except where differences are noted <D6>.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
