2. Text:  Introduction to the Practice of Statistics, 3rd Ed, D. Moore & G. McCabe, Freeman Publishers

 

3. Homeworks and Quizzes:             Each week's assignment will be collected on MONDAY of the following week.  No late homework will be accepted.  Homework solutions will be made available each week after the homework has been collected, and will be on reserve in the library.  Homework assignments are subject to change during the semester.  Every Friday, except for those days mentioned in the syllabus, there will be a ten minute quiz in class.  There will be no make-up quizzes for undocumented absences.  There are a total of 15 homework assignments and 11 quizzes.  The best 20 (any combination) will be used in calculating the semester hw/quiz grade.  Any time you turn in multiple pages of homework, they WILL be stapled together, or only the first page will be graded.

 

4. Attendance:                      Homework assignments will be collected every Monday, quizzes will be given in class every Friday (except as noted).  Missing more than 5 homework assignments and/or quizzes will be considered excessive absences and will be grounds for dismissal from the class with a grade of WF.

 

5. Exams:               There are two mid-term exams and a final exam.  Make-up exams will be given only for the most compelling and extraordinary reason.  All make-up exams must be requested from the instructor in advance of the original exam, and excuses must be documented.

 

6. Academic dishonesty is defined in the UWG student handbook.  Any instance of academic dishonesty on an exam or quiz will result in loss of ALL credit for the semester and receipt of an F grade.  Appeal procedures following such a judgement are also found in the student handbook.

 

7. Semester Project:           There will be a semester project to be chosen by the student and approved by the instructor.  Students may work on the project alone or in groups of up to three students.  Students working in groups can turn in one copy of the project, and the whole group will be assigned the same grade, unless any student desires to turn in his/her own write-up of the project to receive an individual grade.

 

8. Grading Policy:                               Homeworks and quizzes                     15%

Exam 1                                                    20%

Exam 2                                                    20%

Project                                                    20%

Final Exam                                             25%

10. Learning Outcomes:    At the end of the course, the student should be able to demonstrate:

a)       Proficiency in basic probability (L7).

b)       Proper data collection techniques (L7).

c)       Computing and interpreting confidence intervals and tests of hypotheses for means and proportions and for contingency tables, and simple linear regression (L7, L11).

 

11. Calculator:     A graphing programmable calculator is required for this course.  A TI-83 is recommended, but a TI-82, TI-85, TI-86, TI-89, TI-92, or comparable Sharp or Casio will suffice.  A TI-81 will not suffice.
