Next weeks quiz in discussion will be on the binomial.
The standard example of a binomial rv is the number of heads in n
tosses of a coin. The tosses are independent, and the probability of
head is the same for each toss.
We worked through an example with
The quiz will be in discussion on Wednesday.
The quiz will be on measures of central tendency and measures of
variability; i.e. mean, median, range, standard deviation and
variance. I announced some practice exercises in class on Tuesday
and I will announ
Today, we will talk about independence of events (sec 3.6),
review probability, and move on to discrete random variables
Discrete random variables will be on next weeks quiz.
Events A and B are independent events if the occurrenc
The final will be in this classroom (1957 E, Rm 113)
I will come to class Tuesday 4/25 for questions you may have;
there will not be class on Thursday 4/27.
Last thing from Regression and Correlation is the definition of
r= SSxy / (SSxx SSyy)
The first HW will be due next week in discussion on Wed 2/15

We went over discrete random variables. Now we consider a
particular discrete random variable the Binomial.
There will be a quiz in class next week, in your discussion section.
It is closed book, closed notes, but bring your calculator (just the basic
arithmetic operations plus squares and square roots.)
I will post information on Blackboard about it.

Today, I will cover the last CI (Confidence interval), large sample
CI for difference of proportions.
Check Blackboard for HW due next week one of the questions is
on large sample CI for p1- p2, which we cover today.

Today we finish hypothesis testing.
Weve covered the large sample test of a population mean , a
population proportion p, and the difference of population means 1

years. It is widely suspected that young people today are waiting longer to get married. We want to find
