University of Minnesota, Twin Cities School of Statistics Stat 3011 Rweb Textbook (Wild and Seber)

This is the web page for the Fall 2001 class. The web page for last year has been moved here.

New! Homework Solution number 11 posted.

New! Classroom(s) for final exam changed. Exam will be held in Ford B53 (the regular computer lab) and Ford B110 (a classroom one floor up from the lab).

- People who have the 8:00 lab will start in B53 and do the computer lab part.
- People who have the 9:00 lab will start in B110 and do the in-class part.
- Everyone will switch rooms at half time and do the other part.

New! Section on material covered (and material skipped) now goes for the whole course. The final exam will (in principle) cover everything in the whole course. In practice, if you perfectly understand all the kinds of problems on the midterms, that is enough review of the old material.

New! Solutions to the second midterm posted.

New! Distribution of second midterm grades posted.

First Midterm | Wednesday, October 17 (in regular class period) and Thursday, October 18 (in computer lab) |

Second Midterm | Wednesday, November 14 (in regular class period) and Thursday, November 15 (in computer lab) |

Final Exam | 4:00pm-6:00pm, Wednesday, December 19 |

Review of Chapter 7 in Wild and Seber. Also available in PostScript or PDF, which look prettier when printed.

This year's exams will be more or less like last years, but

- these are
*not*"practice exams" - there is
*no guarantee*that every problem on this year's exams will be similar to one on last year's - use at your own risk
- these exams are a good indication of the kind of exams the instructor writes
- they do
*not*indicate every detail of this year's exams
