OFFICE HOURS - this week only Wed 9:30 - 11:00 and 2:00 - 4:00 pm (no Friday OH)

Lectures: No lecture Monday because of MLK holiday. This week we'll finish chapter 3 (Regression, Cautions) and go back and cover Graphs for Categorical Variables and Contingency Tables

NO LABS because Monday is a holiday and we don't want to get out of sync. We are having trouble with the computers in CBD220. We continue to report it to tech support but it can be quite disruptive to lab - that's why we are trying out the new room in CSE. However, if you have a laptop that you can bring to lab as a backup. We can use Minitab through UF APPS (Links to an external site.) but you need to download the Citrix Receiver to your laptop.

Tutoring Room: open 38 hours a week in Griffin Floyd 104 (FLO 104), see schedule link above

Suggested Homework from the textbook: see link above

Quiz 1: on material from Chapters 3 - Correlation and Regression, will be open from Wednesday at noon until Friday at 11:59 pm.  6 questions, 6 points, 3 chances, highest score counts. You can see your graded quiz immediately after submission, and your score recorded in the gradebook.

 

COURSE SCHEDULE CHANGES - Note that, because I want the material in Lab to be covered in the quiz from the previous week, I've had to make some changes to the order in which I'm covering the material. I'm adding information about the pages from the Workbook that I expect to cover in each class. But I also realized that I will need to have a QUIZ the same week as EXAM 1. Plus I decided to open an extra quiz this week, QUIZ 0 (extra), on the material we have covered so far. So we will end up with 11 quizzes this semester and we'll have an extra drop - of all 10 labs and 11 quizzes we will still count the highest 17, so we will drop the lowest 4. I have updated the the Course Schedule link with the changes to the quizzes and will continue to add information about the pages covered from the Workbook.

QUIZ 0 (extra) - on Chapters 1 and 2 - What is Statistics and Graphs and Numerical Summaries will be open from Wed Jan 11 at noon until Fri Jan 13, 11:59 pm. 6 questions, 6 points, 3 chances, highest score counts. You can see your graded quiz immediately after submission, and your score recorded in the gradebook. 

DRC students - Please make sure to give me your accommodations letter, preferably in person during office hours so we can discuss it. If you need testing accommodations, you must also submit an ATR online for each exam for my approval.

OFFICE HOURS CHANGE- please note that the Instructor's office hours have changed from what originally posted. Maria Ripol will have office hours MWF 9:30 - 11:00 am 

  

WEEK 2: JAN 9 - 13  

Lectures are presented live on MWF 5th period (NRN G520) and 6th period (NRN 137), and also available to watch online using the Lecture Recordings link in Canvas. This week we'll continue with chapter 2 - Graphs and Numerical Summaries, and start Correlation and Regression from chapter 3. You need to learn how to find the standard deviation using your calculator - more information in class and here: Calculator Info (Links to an external site.) 

 

Lab 1 - GRAPHS: The activity will be done during lab and turned in before you leave. You must go to the section you are registered for and be on time. Labs meet one hour a week in either CBD 220 or CSE E231. Remember to PRINT and BRING the correct lab worksheet. Be prepared by having watched the lectures pertaining to this material, and make sure you understand it. Usually there will be a QUIZ the previous week on this material, but not this first lab because of Drop/Add.

GENERAL INFO

 LABS– attendance required, once a week in CBD 220 or CSE 231

·         Lab attendance is required for all students, according to the section they are registered for. When you register for this course, please pick the lab section that is most convenient for you.

·         Labs meet once a week with a TA in CBD 220 (half a block North of University Avenue, across from Library West).

·         If you are registered for the Web lectures then the only thing that will appear on your schedule is the Lab, but everyone is welcome to attend the live class anyway.

·         The first week of classes the TA’s will be in lab only to provide information about the course.  If you read all the information on this page and the syllabus and watch the first online lecture, you do not need to attend lab the first week.

·         Starting the second week, you must be on time for lab, come prepared having watched the lectures and done the quiz from the previous week, and bring the Lab Worksheet with you.

 LECTURES– everyone can watch either live or online

·         Attending Live Lectures: they will be taught MWF 6th period in Norman 137 (350 seats).  You may also attend the taping session during MWF 5th period in Norman G520 (25 seats).  Everyone is welcome to attend either of these live lectures, even those who are registered for a Web class. However, once the classrooms are full, no other students will be allowed for safety reasons.

·         Watching Online Lectures: the 5th period lectures will be videotaped and available to view online as streaming video the same day they are taught, usually around 1 pm.  Everyone can watch the online lectures, even those registered for the live section of the course.

·         Link for Online Lectures is posted in the course website in e-Learning.  For the first week of the semester it will also appear on the announcement page outside of e-learning, but after Drop/Add is over all the course content will be moved to e-Learning, and only the Announcements will appear there. 

 REQUIRED LAB WORKBOOK

·         Lab Workbookfor Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data by Megan Mocko and Maria Ripol, 4th edition, Pearson.   

·         Lab Workbook MUST be purchased NEW, and is available alone or bundled with the textbook. 

·         This workbook includes the class notes used in lecture. 

 RECOMMENDED TEXTBOOK 

·         Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data by Agresti, Franklin, Klingenberg 4th edition, Pearson, 2017.  

·         You should have access to the textbook somehow, but it's not required that you buy one. Copies of the textbook will be available in the Tutoring Room and on reserve at Marston Science Library. 

·         If you have access to the third edition of the book it will work for the class as well. But the Lab Workbook MUST be 4th edition.

·         Textbook can be purchased as an Ebook  hardbound new or used (ISBN13: 9780321997838) or bundled with the Lab Workbook (ISBN: 9780134567662)

 SCIENTIFIC (BUT NON GRAPHING) CALCULATOR

·         You will need a calculator with some basic statistical functions: mean and standard deviation.

·         Many inexpensive calculators (around $15) have these functions; check the manual or look for the following symbols: x-bar and either s or σn-1.

·         Graphing calculators will NOT be allowed on the exams.
