Computing requirements: You will be doing regular assignments in SAS or Minitab or SPlus. Computing will account for a significant portion of the mark. I will be assuming that you already know how to use SAS through the assingment lab. If not you will have to use the following handouts to get started: intro to SAS on PC's here and on Macs here ). SAS is common among employers of statisticians. THERE ARE NO JOBS FOR STATISTICIANS WHO CAN'T DO THE COMPUTING.
Grading: Assignments 15%, Midterm (Wednesday 19 Feb.) 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.
