Lecture Notes

Homework and Solutions

To get the maximum benefit from lectures, and to be successful in this course, students are expected to put forth a strong independent study effort. This includes carefully reading the text, preferably ahead of lecture, and diligently working on homework problems. In lectures, I will focus on important concepts and problem areas instead of just reiterating material in the book. The course covers

• data summary and presentation (Ch 1 and 2, 1 week)

• random variables and distributions (Ch 3, 4 weeks)

• estimation, confidence interval, hypothesis testing for one sample (Ch 4, 3 weeks)

• estimation, confidence interval, hypothesis testing for two samples (Ch 5, 2 weeks)

• statistical process control (Ch 8, 1.5~2 weeks)

• analysis of variance, linear regression (Ch 6, 1 week)

It is absolutely essential that you do the assigned homework-and additional problems if needed. Homework is due during lecture time of deadline date. Late submissions of homeworks will not be accepted. This course will have three exams (Exam 1: September 26 (6~7:15pm), Exam 2: October 30 (6~7:15pm), and Exam 3: Dec 12 (7~9pm)). No compensation for missed exams will be considered unless prior approved arrangements have been made.

A course total score will be based on the following,

• weekly homework: 25 % (HW will be assigned on Thursdays and due on Thursday one week after the assignment.)

• three exams: 25 % each (All three exams are closed book, closed notes exams, and only calculators are allowed. In Exams #2 and #3, a formula sheet with regular size is allowed.)

• attendance: up to extra 3 % (Since this is a statistics class, 7~8 attendance checks will be done in class at random.)

This class will be graded roughly on the scale of

• 90 % = A range (A- = 90%~93%-, A = 93~100%)

• 80 % = B range (B- = 80%~83%-, B = 83%~87%-, B+ = 87%~90%-)

• 70 % = C range (C- = 70%~73%-, C = 73%~77%-, C+ = 77%~80%-)

• 60 % = D range (D = 60%~65%-, D+ = 65%~70%-)

• 60%- = F.

Academic Integrity:  Please note that we take extremely seriously the university’s policy on the need for academic honesty in all your work.  Any form of dishonesty in an assignment will lead to a zero on an assignment and we reserve the right to give a grade of F for the course as well.  If needed, Student Conduct will be contacted.  Visit the following site for more information regarding what constitutes academic dishonesty and the WSU procedures for handling cases of academic dishonesty. http://www.conduct.wsu.edu/default.asp?PageID=343
