Review session: AQ 4100 Tuesday, December 10th from 10:30 until 12:20.

Computing requirements: By the end of the course students should be able to do the following in Minitab or SAS (intros to SAS on PC's here and on Macs here ): Read in data. Manipulate data. One-way and Two-way fixed effects ANOVA (with and without replication in the case of two-way). Simple and Multiple regression. Make and examine histograms of residuals, scatterplots, Q-Q plots. SAS is common among employers of statisticians. THERE ARE NO JOBS FOR STATISTICIANS WHO CAN'T DO THE COMPUTING.

Grading: Assignments 15%, Midterm 25% and Final 60%. If you get a better mark on the final than on the midterm I will replace the midterm with the final. If you miss the midterm I will use the final in its place; there will be no make-up midterms.

Privacy Policy: The Math and Stat department has a policy on privacy under which students who desire so may have their homework returned in some private way; if you are such a student you should speak to me immediately.

Assignments: You may miss two with no penalty. I will be looking for well written explanations in answers since no one is interested in unexplained calculations in the real world. The questions: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10,

Handout on ANOVA

The final exam from 95/3.

Course Schedule: 96-3
