Statistics I (Fall 2019)
Welcome to my class!
Textbook: The required textbook is "Mathematical Statistics with Applications" by Dennis D. Wackerly, William Mendenhall III, and Richard L. Scheaffer. (this is NOT the international edition-if you are using the international edition, you need to always consult for your homework assignments with the library copies on reserve)
Prerequisites: Two semesters of single variable calculus (Math 131-132) or the equivalent, with a grade of "C" or better in Math 132. Math 233 is required for this course. However, some necessary concepts for multiple integration or partial derivatives will be re-introduced in the course as needed.
During the semester, I will use the Moodle system. All announcements, homework assignments and resources will be uploaded on Moodle. At the same time, written homework assignment will be updated on this website.
