## Announcements

New! The course total column in the Moodle grades now makes sense and agrees with the numbers that were used to assign letter grades. The grade distribution of course totals shows the distribution of these course totals, so you can see where you ranked in the whole class, among graduate students, or among undergraduate students.

New! Course letter grades have been entered into the University grade system. They should be available within 24 hours.

New! Grade distribution for the final exam posted under either Exams or Exam Solutions in the Navigation to the left).

New! Final exam grades are in Moodle.

New! Solutions for final exam re-posted. Alternative solutions to problem 6 added. Under Exam Solutions links in the navigation to the left (same user name and password as for homework solutions).

Grades for 2nd midterm are in Moodle.

Grade distribution for the 2nd midterm exam posted under either Exams or Exam Solutions in the Navigation to the left).

The second midterm **is not** cumulative. The material it covers
begins where the first midterm left off and continues through the material
for this homework.
That is slide 147, deck 2 through slide 50, deck 4
and homeworks 5, 6, 7, and 8.
Note that the final exam **is** cumulative. So don't forget
the material covered on the first midterm.

The first midterm covers material in deck 1 of the course slides and in the part of deck 2 up through slide 146 (confidence intervals are covered hypothesis tests are not on this midterm).

An e-mail message from the provost (Karen Hanson) says the regular U of M policy on excused absences has been re-instated (the flu scare is over, at least temporarily). This means just saying you thought you had flu is not an excuse for missing the midterm.

Here is the link to the material covered in the review session. This class does not have a required textbook (see the section about texts on the course info page).

The recordings (link in the navigation to the left) should now be viewable by students who were registered before the beginning of class. The permissions do not automatically update, so students who register later must be added separately. If you cannot see the recordings, email the instructor (Geyer, e-mail address on General Info page) with 5102 in the subject line asking for permission to view the recordings.
