**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.

**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.

**Handouts for the lectures**

**Assignments:** You may miss one with no penalty; however, all
computing assignments are required. I will be
looking for well written explanations in answers since no one is interested
in unexplained calculations in the real world. The questions:
