Course Description:

An introduction to basic probability theory,
sampling from normal populations, largesample problems, sampling from
one or two populations, estimation, and testing. SAS is used to perform
statistical analyses. There are three lectures and one 1 1/2 hour lab
per week. This course is demanding and requires a great deal
of work. Some material covered in class may come from other
sources as a supplement to the text. Students are responsible for all
materials covered in the lectures. They are expected to attend all
lectures and to bring the text and a hand calculator.
Attendence
is mandatory for the lectures,
as well as the computer lab. 

Grading Policy: 
The student's course grade is based on his/her
performance on the computer lab score, three midterms, and a
comprehensive final examination (2 hr.s). Each midterm cover the
material introduced since the previous midterm. The lowest midterm
score will be dropped. The maximum possible number of points for each
category are

In
order to merit a passing grade, the student must
obtain at least 70% of the total possible lab score and 50% of
the total possible final exam score. This is nonnegotiable. 
The student's course grade is then based on the
following table:

There
are no makeups for any of the exams.
The students should make all of their
semesters' plans in advance. 
The only exceptions to this rule are (a)
medical emergencies, together with written evidence of such an
emergency; or (b) conflicting, and official, universityrelated
activities (such as athletic meets) with written documentation. The
missed exams should be rescheduled with the instructor as soon as
possible.

Assignments, Quizzes and
Examinations

You will find a list of assigned homework below.
The students are expected to have attempted (and solved most of) them
by the end of the date appearing at each homework. For best results,
questions regarding the assignments should to be raised during the
instructor's office hours.
A
good policy for studying for this course
is be to attempt the homeworks on time. Then, use
the subsequent office hours to answer any or all of your unresolved
questions. 
The
midterms and the final will be taken in
the lecture room. 
 Midterm 1 includes everything upto the material
covered by 09/20;
 Midterm 2 does not include the material of
Midterm 1; but it includes everything up to the material covered by
10/18.
 Midterm 3 does not include the material of
Midterm 1 or 2; but it includes everything up to the material covered
by 11/15.
 The final is comprehensive.
Homework assignments will not be collected.
However, be aware that this is a very intensive course
you are strongly encouraged to solve the homeworks in time,
in order to keep up with the development of the subject matter.
