The course notes (for some other course, not required for this course) on
baby

measure theory (read if interested).

Not required, but for those who want to know more about coin flips or dice rolls, here is a YouTube video about coin flips by a famous statistician, and here is a two-part YouTube video about dice rolls (Part I and Part II).

Your instructor has a commitment right after class on Fridays (the Biology Interest Group of the Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science) and so will not be able to hang around after class on Fridays. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I can answer questions at length, even if we have to move the conversation out in the hall.

This web site has no index, so in order to find stuff one needs to use a search engine. Here is how to do that. For example, if you want to find information on the beta distribution, then the search

"beta distribution" site:www.stat.umn.edu/geyer/5101does that. This works either with Google or with DuckDuckGo. The quotation marks mean find the exact phrase. If they are left off, then the search engine will return results that have the word beta and the word distribution, not necessarily in the same paragraph much less in the same sentence. The magic is the

`site:`

part, which
tells the search engine only to look in that site. The site can be made more restrictive, for example,

"beta distribution" site:www.stat.umn.edu/geyer/5101/slidessays to look only in the slides.

This course has no dead tree format syllabus. Instead we have this web site.

For general information see the General Info link in the navigation section to the left.

In particular, note that this class has no textbook. All of the course material is covered in the slides found under the Course Slides link in the navigation section to the left.

For homework assignments see the Homework Assignments link in the navigation section to the left.

This course also has a Canvas site, which is also linked in the navigation section to the left. We will use that for the gradebook, handing in homework assignments, and discussions. Everything else is here.

This course is a UNITE class. Recordings of the lectures will be available on the UNITE web site (https://unite.umn.edu/) some time after the lecture (I don't know what the rules for this semester will be yet). Exams will be in-class for students not enrolled in the UNITE sections. Exams for UNITE students will be at the same time as for other students with proctoring arranged by UNITE.
