Wednesday 4 Dec 11:30-1:00, Thursday 5 Dec 9:30-2:00, Tuesday 10 December
9;30-10:30 and 12:30-2:00. I may not be in my office at all
times -- look around the math dept for me.

** Course structure:** These two courses will be conducted simultaneously, though the
801 students will get one more lecture hour per week at a time
to be determined. Graduate students will get somewhat different
assignments and a different final exam. The midterm exam will be
common to the two groups.

**Computing requirements:** There will be a computational
component to this course; details have yet to be determined.
Graduate students will be required to do graphing and programming
in S. THERE ARE NO JOBS FOR STATISTICIANS WHO CAN'T DO THE COMPUTING.

**Grading:** Assignments 20%, Midterm 20% 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 one with no penalty.
If you miss fewer I will drop your lowest assignment mark.
I will be
looking for well written explanations in answers since no one is interested
in unexplained calculations in the real world.

Solutions are currently available for Assignments 2 through 8. The solutions are for usually for the 450 versions of the problems but occassionally for the more general 801 versions of the problems.

Midterm solutions.

A final from 1991. Most of the material on this old final would not be suitable for this course.
