“CRAN” link located on the left-hand side menu and select a desired mirror location. Then select your operating system (ie: MacOS X or Windows) and follow the links and instructions to complete installation. Please contact the TA for assistance with installing R. If you have your own favorite statistical package which you prefer to use, please feel free to do so. However, if you choose not to use R you are responsible for your own support. The statistical software support necessary to complete the homework assignments will only be provided for R. If you are not used to using a statistical software package it is highly recommended that you use R. The R software package will be demonstrated throughout the course. An introduction to the R software will be given during the first lab/class. Attendance: Attendance at all lectures/labs is expected. All students will be responsible for information and announcements presented in lecture. Unexcused absences will result in not meeting the course objectives and a reduction of final grade. Exams: There will be one in-class midterm examination given on the date noted in the schedule at the end of the syllabus. You will have the complete class length (2 hours) to complete the examination. The exams are closed book, but you can have a one-page letter-size cheat sheet, on which you can write whatever you want . The final examination will consist of two sections : a take-home exam and a project assignment (including a presentation by teams of three/four students in the last class). Note that a final project report is NOT required for this semester. Homework: Homework assignments must be handed in at the beginning of class on the date they are due. Since it is important that the assignments keep pace with the lectures, homework assignments must be turned in on time. If you know you will not be attending class on a day when homework is due, drop it off in my mailbox or email it by the due date.
