"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.

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.
