- Mar 04: Sorry for the delay. The unofficial marks are finally posted.
Good luck with the rest of your studies.
- Feb 18: Stat Lab (S525Ross) hours during exam period: M-F 11-3 (between
Feb 20 and Mar 2).
- Feb 18: FINAL EXAM IS RESCHEDULED ON FEB 23, 2009 (Monday) from
7pm to 10pm. SECTION A GOES TO CLH-F and SECTION B GOES TO CLH-E.
- Feb 6: Since we have the new coverage, I will not need the second page
of the summary that was posted for Feb 6's lecture.
- Feb 6: Final exam information are posted below.
- Feb 6: For questions posted on "Practice questions for Assignment 3
material", all the questions are relevant. Question 2 will be covered
next week. By the end of today's lecture, the rest of the questions will
all be covered. You can use it for practice!
- Feb 6: IMPORTANT: By York's regulations, all courses will have
"course evaluations". Most of the departments are asking students to do it
online. Here is the link to do the evaluation:
- Feb 2: More update. Two special tutorials have been set up. It will be
Feb 8 and Feb 15 from 9am to 12noon in TEL 0014. All tutorials are optional.
They are for extra help.
- Feb 2: An updated version of the course outline for the remediation period
is now posted. This is for both sections.
- Nov 5: Updated unofficial grades are posted at 8:30pm. So are the solution
and some comments regarding the test. Seems likely there's a strike.
Enjoy your break! See you when classes resume!
- Oct 31: This article is sent to us by the university
regarding information of the strike: document
- Oct 29: Due to the "bomb threat", I have to re-schedule the test. It will
be on Nov 3 (Monday). The coverage, ... everything will be the same.
The questions of course will be different. For certain there will be no
strike on that day because the University has already announced that
strike will probably start on Nov 6.
- Oct 26: Sorry I made some mistakes in posting the "practice test".
I didn't read the questions carefully and included some questions that should
not be there. You can IGNORE: 4d, 8b, 9c, and 10b. Also, in the "practice
test", I did not include Poisson nor Hypergeometric because we don't usually
cover this subject in previous years and so I don't have past year questions
to post. You are still responsible for both of them.
- Oct 21: Finally, the normal table (Table 3) is now posted.
- Oct 15: For Oct 17 class, please bring Table 3 (from text) to class.
I will try to scan a copy and put it on the web later.
- Oct 15: Test information posted below.
- Oct 03: Clarification of Assignment 2 Question 2, "foreign" in this
case means "non-American". The book which I copied this question is an
American text and that's why it creates all the confusion. Hope this is clear
- Sep 24: For extra help, we have the Stats Lab (S525 Ross)
which open Monday to Friday from 10:30 to 15:30. It is a drop in help
center and graduate students are there to try to help students in
introductory statistics classes
- Sep 18: Please print out the example for Sep 19's class (just in case
the computer doesn't work again). It will make the discussion much easier.
- Sep 16: Just to clarify the requirements for Assignment 1. You can either
write up the assignment (as long as the grader can read your hand writing) or
you can type it up (no bonus for typing). You can either use computer to do
the work or use "hand calculations". If you are using computer softwares,
please include the outputs and indicate clearly where are the answers.
It is not the graders' responsibilities to find out where are the answers in
the computer printouts. My suggestion, try to do it by "hand calculations"
and use computer to verify your results. This will achieve two aims: first
your test and exam will need "hand calculations" and this will be some
practice for you, and secondly, using computer to verify the results will
make sure you get a high mark for the assignment.
- Sep 13: Due to the religious holiday that the other section (Section B)
has encountered, Assignment 2 due date is postponed to Oct 22.
