INFORMATION ABOUT ASSIGNMENTS There will be six assignments required for this course; only the top five marks will be used to compute the final grade. The objective of the assignments is to make sure you understand each section of the course material and not leaving it until exam preparation time. Each assignment will be posted on Vista on a Friday and are usually due at 1:00 pm on Friday two weeks later. There are two exceptions: Assignment 4 is due three weeks after posting, because of midterm break week, and Assignment 6 is due on Thursday, April 4, the second-last day of classes. Here is a detailed list of assignment dates: Assignment # Date Posted Date Due Assignment 1 Fri. Jan. 4 Fri. Jan. 18 Assignment 2 Fri. Jan. 18 Fri. Feb. 1 Assignment 3 Fri. Feb. 1 Fri. Feb. 15 Assignment 4 Fri. Feb. 15 Fri. Mar. 8 Assignment 5 Fri. Mar. 8 Fri. Mar. 22 Assignment 6 Fri. Mar. 22 Thu. Apr. 4 (note due date) All assignments will require hard copy submission, to the assignment mailboxes on the third floor of Henry Angus, across from HA 347. NO LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. The mailboxes will be cleared at 1:00 pm on the due date. Any assignments submitted after that time will not be marked. A GUIDE TO ASSIGNMENTS AND EXAMS The assignments and exams aim to test your understanding of the material, not just your arithmetic skills. A correct answer displays the correct understanding of the problem. Numerically correct answers do not necessarily receive full marks. This emphasizes the fact that the actual numbers are usually not of interest. Your job is to display your understanding, not just to show you can get the right numerical answer. The best way to prepare for the exams is to do lots of problems. Statistics cannot be learned simply by reading the material. Do as many problems as possible. Check the web page on textbook information for a list of suggested problems.

    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.
