PROJECT INFO:

Class Project:

 Milestone 1

-          Topic chosen

-          Research done

-          Survey questions - on hold

Milestone 2

-          Surveys collected 10 from each student

-          Correlation

Milestone 3 - TBD

 

 

Homework = 40 points each     Quizzes = 20 points each
Class Activities = 30 points       Exams = 400 points each
Class Project = 180 points              Final Exam = 500 points 
Must earn 65% on final exam AND have sufficient points earned to pass the course.  
Grades will be rounded up if Final exam is the higher of the two grades AND 80% of HW and CA have been completed.    

Know this:  65% on final exam is NOT a passing grade and no exam scores will be replaced by non-passing scores.

Assignments:

Statdisk Training Videos 

 

Math 150 – HW

Instructions for video portions of the assignments:  Take notes while watching the videos.  For some videos fill-in notes are provided (by clicking on the link and printing.  For the first few I have printed these out, but after that you will need to print your own using the link.)  For videos without fill-in notes provided you need to do your own notes or answer a response question.  If there are no instructions next to the video then take notes on the video and write the definition/description of the main concepts. Turn this in with your HW.  Be sure to write and underline or highlight the TITLE of each video above EACH of your video notes.

HW Notes: For selected sections you will be reading the text and filling out notes and answering self-check questions.  Turn these in with the HW.

Instructions for Vocabulary: Make a list of pertinent vocabulary for EVERY section of HW that you turn in. Do this for each NEW section covered in the HW.  Be sure to label what section EACH vocabulary is from.  (You do not need to redo vocabulary for sections already covered on previous HW.)

General HW instructions available with tentative schedule by clicking on your section number at top of this page. They were also handed out on the first day of class. Be sure to read the general HW instructions to avoid losing points.

(If it helps, watch BOTH videos.) You can also read these topics (Sampling distribution & Central Limit Theorem (CLT)) in your book if these videos don't help.

Central Limit Theorem example problem (4:18) This video works on ONE problem using the CLT, follow along and write down your work and the appropriate picture and the solutions and any notes that will help you remember how to do this type of problem.

Course Material:

Elementary Statistics by Triola  Elementary Statistics by Triola.  (978-1-323-57817-9 Third California Edition or 13th general edition)  This is a NEW edition of the textbook from last semester, so do NOT purchase a used book from a student from previous semesters.

*TI-84 Plus (TI 86 and TI 89 not allowed. There will be no sharing of calculators during exams, nor substitution via other types of calculators, your calculator must ONLY be a calculator and have no internet access options. You must have this calculator to perform operations in class and to practice the work at home to become proficient. See me if you need help getting a calculator).

*2 Large Blue Exam books for Class Activity Work.

*  Handy-Dandy Pullout Chart - (Click on your book: 12th Edition, then click on Formula & Table Card)  If you print this out you can use it for tests and quizzes.  It has all the major formulas and charts.

*Statdisk downloaded (available for free at: http://wps.aw.com/aw_triola_stats_series/  )
