1 STAT 301 (Online and Traditional) SYLLABUS for Spring 2011 INSTRUCTOR: Ellen Gundlach EMAIL: gundlach@stat.purdue.edu (best way to contact me) OFFICE: MATH 238 (phone: 765-496-6975) OFFICE HOURS: Mondays 11:30 am – 1 pm LAB T.A.: Kristen Young, young3@purdue.edu Any student may attend the office hours of any STAT 301 instructor. A master schedule of all STAT 301 office hours will be posted on the course website. STAT 301 T.A.s will also be available in a computer lab on most evenings on which an assignment is due (see schedule and room on course webpage). COURSE WEBSITE: http://www.stat.purdue.edu/~gundlach/stat301/ COURSE FACEBOOK GROUP: “STAT 301 Purdue University” COURSE COORDINATOR: Ellen Gundlach, gundlach@stat.purdue.edu COURSE GOALS: 1) Choose and identify appropriate experimental and sampling designs. 2) Use elementary statistical methods to analyze data. 3) Draw conclusions from these statistical analyses. 4) Use SPSS statistical software, which will give you the skills needed to use many other types of statistical software. 5) Critically evaluate statistical reports written by other people, including other students, researchers, businesses, and reporters. 6) Write statistical reports using correct terminology, analyses, and graphs. REQUIRED MATERIALS: 1) The textbook (Moore, McCabe, and Craig, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics , 6th edition, W.H. Freeman), also on reserve in Math library on the 3 rd floor of the MATH building. You can use either the regular paper copy or the less expensive e-Book. We will not ask you to do homework problems from the book, so a cheap 5 th edition version of the book would be good enough for reading purposes, but note that in Chapters 2, 3, and 9 the section numbers don’t match up well. Check the section titles, not the section numbers if you use an older edition of the book. 2) Access to SPSS program (see note later in syllabus). 3) Registration with Perdisco online homework and tutoring company ($31.40 fee). 4) A scientific calculator (graphing calculator is ok but not necessary). 5) An activated Purdue University Computing Center career account. 6) A stapler for labs and any other papers you may turn in. 7) Recommended, but not required: StatsPortal (web resource that accompanies the textbook from W.H. Freeman). Access can be purchased with the textbook or e- Book. StatsPortal contains an online SPSS Manual, applets, study help, etc.

2 If you are an online student who feels, partway through the semester, that you would like to attend lectures, then use the course website to find an instructor whose lecture time works for you. E-mail the instructor to ask if you can sit in on lectures. (The answer is almost always “yes.”) You would not make an official switch to that section, but you are welcome to supplement the online lectures with in-person lectures. What is the difference between traditional 301 and the online 301?
