Review Probability Distributions for Discrete Random Variables Probability Distributions for Continuous Random Variables Office hours I All TAs and instructors hold office hours. Some are online chat sessions. I Any time we have TA office hours in Mayo C381, you can come work on the computers in C381, whether or not you have any questions for the TA. I Several other classes hold office hours in C381 and will allow you to work independently during those hours. I See the course web page for more details.

Review Probability Distributions for Discrete Random Variables Probability Distributions for Continuous Random Variables Homework format I HW 1 is due Thursday 15 Sept in class. I Please type as much of your homework as possible (e.g., stem and leaf plots can be done by hand). I Please turn in your homework on paper, stapled; write your NAME on it. I We will not accept homework by email except in unusual circumstances (illness, professional travel, etc.). (We cannot take the time to download from email and print out 150+ homework files. . . ) I For computer (SAS or R) problems, please include the computer output that shows the result needed to answer the question; copy and paste it into your homework file. (Including your code is optional.) Please do NOT include output that is not relevant to your answer. Mugglin and Eberly PubH 6450 Fall 2011 Part 03 4 / 56
