Problems in the second column will be graded on effort (1 point for making a decent effort at the problem) and not for correctness,

but you should try to understand how to solve all these problems before test time!

You must write your homework solutions NEATLY. You must present your solutions in the order that the problems are assigned (with the Column 2 problems last).

Handwritten solutions are fine, but if you type solutions, you should use either LaTeX or MS Word's Equation Editor,

since other word processors (like Word without Equation Editor) are not designed for mathematical typing.

If you have the international edition, you might want to compare problem numbers with me or with a classmate who has the regular edition to make sure you're doing the problems assigned.

The problem numbers given above reflect the regular 7th edition.

6.73, 6.77(a), 6.81 (answers to these are in the back of the book)

These problems may be useful problems for practicing the Sec. 9.8 material and the Sec. 7.5 material:

9.98, 9.99, 9.100, 7.81, 7.82

In general, I recommend that you practice lots of problems from the book in preparation for the tests!

- Instructions for Downloading R (It is not necessary to download R for this course, but it is free and can be very useful for statistical analysis!)

- Test 1 Formula Sheet (You do NOT have to bring this to the test. A copy will be provided to you with your test.)

- For Test 2 (Spring 2014), only the "Common Distributions Sheets" (in the back cover of the textbook) will be provided with the exam.

ALSO: Tables 4,5,6,7 (the z, t, chi-square, and F tables) will be provided with the exam. Know how to use them!

- Test 3 Formula Sheet (You do NOT have to bring this to the test. A copy will be provided to you with your test.)

- Example Solutions for Test 1, Spring 2014 (These are in the order of the Version A test, but Version B is just reordered with slight changes (see solutions))
