Course Web Page:
The current official syllabus for this course is available in the wall pockets across from MS 476 and
on the webpage at www.math.ucalgary.ca Course Listing-Undergraduate.
There is also a web page for this course which contains the course outline, tentative course schedule,  grading scheme, important class dates, etc.
Announcements made in class will be posted there (see end of this web-page). The address of this web page is: http://www.math.ucalgary.ca/~aswish/stat213W14L04.html/

Nature of the Course
Mathematical proofs will be minimal: reasonings and explanations will be based mostly on figures, tables, numerical examples, plots and graphs.
Also, the following open-access Web site includes statistical applets, data sets, supplementary exercises, statistical profiles, self-quizzes: www.whfreeman.com/ips7e

Computing Facilities
Minitab 16 (labs MS515 and MS521)
You may use Minitab Guide for calculating statistics

Midterm and Assignments:
There will be 2 Midterms (in the Labs: MS515 & MS521) on February 12 and March 26, 2014, and  5 Assignments (Online, StatsPortal).

Final Exam: Saturday, April 26, 7-9pm, Room: KN AUX
It will cover all the materials covered in this course.
