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. 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!
For attribution, simply mention my name and/or web URL somewhere if you are using huge chunks of the notes. I simply want due credit.

FALL 2019 CLASSES: You can pick up items in my office, MS215-P. I expect to be in on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, 1-4pm, starting Mon., Jan. 6 and ending Mon., Jan. 27, but excepting the King holiday on Mon., Jan. 20. You may want to email in advance just in case. You can also pick up items during the Spring 2020 term (office hours probably MW 6:30-7:45pm, TTh 5:30-6:45pm, just like for Fall 2019). Everything will be thrown away after the Spring 2020 semester.
Call my office phone at (619) 388-2396 if you have a hard time getting into the building. The front entrance is most likely to be open.
