Statistics is best learnt by doing. The homework problems give you practice in doing and interpreting statistics.
You are encouraged to work together on the homework. Discussions with classmates will help you learn the material. Copying someone else's paper will not help you learn, and is not encouraged.
I have office hours on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. This time can be used to ask questions about the homework. I am also happy to answer questions by e-mail anytime.
The homework will be due at the beginning of lecture on the assigned day. Please turn them in on time; no late homework will be accepted. The lowest homework score will be dropped.
Please, also keep track (at least approximately) of the amount of time you spend doing the homework problems. Write it down at the bottom of your answers.
