Please enroll yourself in the online discussion for this course at Piazza.

We will be using the R statistical language for computer assignment(s).

Students may also consider the computer algebra system Mathematica. UIUC students may access the program online for free, or download a copy for a fee.

- Weekly paper homework
**due each Thursday**. Usually problems are the exercises in the Chong lecture notes listed at the weekly schedule. Additional homework handouts (graded/ungraded) may also be distributed. - Short (10-minute) pop-quizzes
**approximately weekly**(emphasizing material in the preceding lecture). - Computer assignments to be completed via the R statistical language will be assigned throughout the term. Details here.
- There will be three 80-minute in-class midterm exams on the following Thursdays:
**9/26, 10/24, 11/21**

Scores are visible via Moodle using your NETID login. Cutoffs for grades will be determined at the semester's end to align with historic distribution for this course.

There will be no make-up for any assessment (including homework) except for university-sanctioned absences and religious holidays.

- Please
*first check*if your question is answered at Piazza. If not, post a question! - The course TA has weekly office hours (listed above). No appointment needed. Just stop by.
- If your question remains unanswered, drop by my office hours: T 1-3PM and W 4-5PM or by appointment. Please note that the time on Tuesday is shared with MATH 415.

- Expect to devote at least two hours of study for every hour in the classroom. Thus, for a class that meets 3 hr/wk, the student should expect to work at least 6 hr/wk outside class for a total of at least 9hr/wk for the course. This rule-of-thumb is probably an underestimate for upper-level and/or honors classes.
- Know your fellow classmates. Get the contact info for at least three classmates.
- Post/view questions/answers at the Piazza site for this course. Participate in the discussion.
- Read the lesson before it is covered in class. Make a list of questions. Ask your fellow classmates for help.
- Attend class. If you have a question, ask! Likely your classmates have a similar question. Ask any remaining questions after class or seek your classmates for help.
- Study and work together. Try explaining concepts and solutions to each other.
- Do all assigned homework problems. Make sure you understand all deductions on returned assessments.
