"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).

GOING ONLINE!

ZOOM (general link: https://zoom.us)

“See” you in class on Zoom! Check my email (or Canvas) for the class link. See my syllabus for details.

YOUTUBE

You can access my YouTube channel here; I plan to play these videos during class time using Zoom – and I can take questions:

Go to Playlists. Sort by “Last video added.”

• I hope to organize these links better on this website.

CANVAS: Discussion Boards and NetTutor!

I don’t do much with Canvas, but a student discussion board and a NetTutor link are there. I will email grade information.

Notes on using the Canvas site: Math 119 Canvas notes

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!

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.

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.
