Announcements

New! Final exam grades have been entered in Moodle.

New! Grade distributions for the final exam posted (under the exam and exam solutions sections of the navigation to the left).

New! Solutions to the final exam posted (in the navigation section to the left). The same username and password as for homework solutions are needed.

New erratum posted in the errata section (in the navigation section to the left).

For those who cannot find the old final exams, they are

http://www.stat.umn.edu/geyer/f11/5101/test/t3.pdf (2011 final exam).
http://www.stat.umn.edu/geyer/f09/5101/test/t3.pdf (2009 final exam).

Solution to homework 12 posted (link in the navigation section to the left). All solutions for homeworks are now posted.

Extra office hours for Geyer will be 2:30–4:15 on Friday, Dec 14 (the day before the exam).

All homeworks that have not been picked up are in Geyer's office and can be picked up either today or in the extra office hours on Friday.

The algorithms handout as handed out in class Wednesday, November 21 contained an error (which is on the errata page). Everyone should fix their copy (change the heading of Section 7.3 in both the table of contents and the body of the text).

File algo3.pdf will be handed out in class November 21. This may be helpful for study. Unlike the brand name distributions and greek letters handouts, which may be used on midterms and the final exam, these algorithms handdouts are not allowed to be used on midterms and the final exam. You need to understand these algorithms. The mere formulas aren't enough by themselves.

We have already gotten a big classroom for 5102 so everyone who is in our 5101 section can get into the 5102 section I am teaching (again at 9:05 MWF). We're just not sure how to handle this yet (raise the caps, give out permission numbers, or something else). I'll announce what we are going to do when I find out from the department staff.
