Desire and Determination Bring Any Goal Within Reach Math 416 / Stat 416: Probability – Spring 2011 Division 1 MWF 11:30am - 12:20pm (REC 121) Division 2 MWF 12:30pm - 1:20pm (UNIV 119) Instructor : Dr. Walid Sharabati Office : HAAS 176 (mailbox: HAAS 164) Office Hours : Monday, Wednesday: 2:30pm-3:30pm Email : wsharaba@stat.purdue.edu Textbook : Fundamentals of Probability: A First Course, by Anirban DasGupta, 2010. (Required). Introduction to Probability , by George Roussas, Academic Press, 2007. (Recommended). Course Website: http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~wsharaba/stat416.htm . This site will be used to provide you with information relevant to the course. Such information includes this page, announcements, lecture notes, homework assignments and solutions, reading assignments, dates of exams, review sheets, and changes to office hours. Please check this site regularly for updates. Blackboard Vista: A Vista site has been created for this course. Students enrolled in this course will automatically be given access to this site (“auto-populated”). The Vista site is limited to enrolled students and thus will be used to provide restricted information such as grades. Final Grade : Your final grade will depend on the following components with these proportions: Class participation 5% Project/Lab 10% Homework 15% Exam 1 20% (Wednesday, February 16, 2011) Exam 2 20% (Wednesday, March 23, 2011) Final Exam 30% These proportions may be adjusted by up to 5% in either direction at the instructor's discretion, but will be the same for every student in the class. The percentage grades needed to achieve an A, B, C, or D will follow approximately the following scale: 90 – 100 for A, 80 – 89.9 for B, 70 – 79.9 for C, 60 – 69.9 for D, 0 – 59.9 for F. The minimum score needed for a given letter grade could be lowered if necessary but will not be raised. (I expect – but won’t guarantee – that the median grade in this class will be a B.) Mailing List: A mailing list will be arranged for this course. I will send (very occasionally) email to this list with any special announcements or reminders. Grader : All homework will be graded by a student grader, who will also help grade the exams. He or she will not hold office hours. Lectures: Lecture notes will usually be displayed on the computer projection screen during class, occasionally supplemented by blackboard sketches and/or overhead transparencies. The computer- displayed notes will be made available to you on the class web page as Portable Document Format (.pdf) documents. Usually they will be available in advance of class. We will cover roughly one chapter
