Math 3070-1 Schedule and Homework for the Semester 1-28-8
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Homework makes up a hefty 20% of the grade. These problems are taken from
the textbook "Probability and Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences" 7ed.
by Jay L. Devore, Duxbury, 2008. All listed problems are to be turned in.
Homework from Wednesday, Friday and Monday will be due Friday. Late homework
that is up to one week late will receive half credit. Homework that is more
than one week late will receive no credit at all.
Your solutions must be self-contained. Please copy or paraphrase the problem.
Your solutions must include some explanation. The answers given in the
solutions manual will usually not be adequate. You will not receive any points
just for copying the solution from the manual.
Our homework reader is Jungdae (Pete) Kim (sixlines@gmail.com). You have
until 5:00 p. m. or so Fridays when he goes home to turn in papers to Jungdae
(Pete) Kim's mailbox, near the window behind the coffee machine in JWB 228.
