MATH 119 - ELEMENTARY STATISTICS

Email me (I encourage corrections!)     HOME

"Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write." - paraphrasing of H.G. Wells (British author) by a former president of the American Statistical Association.

"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." - Benjamin Disraeli (19c British Prime Minister).

Printing Suggestions for Typed Files

I recommend two-page-to-a-side and/or double-sided printing to save paper. Color printing is nice, but B&W printing is cheaper.

These are pdf files. You can get the free Adobe Reader at http://www.adobe.com. Get a version that is compatible with your system!

 

Class Notes

Many students benefit from printing the notes for a lecture beforehand, reviewing them, and commenting on them in class.

You may want to take personalized sketch notes in class.
