**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.
