**MATH 119 - ELEMENTARY STATISTICS**

"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. If the
typed print is too small, try something like Page Setup: Scale: 110% or 105%,
unless print gets cut off (100% may be better for handwritten notes). 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*

¥ **CORRECTIONS:**
In the handwritten notes, I should have written **units** such as ÒpointsÓ
more frequently.

¥ 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 Òsketch notesÓ in class.

¥ __Disclaimer__:
Some of these notes are not updated to the 4^{th} edition of the book,
but that wonÕt pose a problem. The differences with the new edition are mostly
in the homework sets.

For Òattribution,Ó
simply mention my name and/or web URL somewhere if youÕre using huge chunks of
the notes. I simply want due credit.
