This week we also explored the First
Fundamental
Mystery of
Probability
,the Second Fundamental Mystery of
Probability
and the Third Fundamental Mystery of
Probability
. With these fundamental mysteries in hand we can see why we need
the ``n-1" in the denominator of the sample variance. ** Note : **
this ``n-1" discussion
discussion is not for the faint of heart, and will ** never ** show up
on an
exam, but I think its kind of fun fun to see!)

** Week 5 (April 21-April 25) :**
** Announcement: ** The Midterm will be held during class on Wednesday
April 30th. The midterm exam will cover chapters 1-6 of the text as
well as any topics covered in class.
We will be exploring chapter 6 of the text this
week. Please read
chapter 6. Two or three of your exam questions next week will be
based on the definitions and ODD numbered questions found in sections
6.2-6.6 of chapter 6.

** Week 6 (April 28-May 2) :**
There will be quiz on Wednesday May 7th
based on the definitions and ODD numbered questions found in sections
6.7, 7.2, and 7.3.

** Week 7 (May 5-May 9) :**
There will be quiz on Wednesday May 14th
based on the definitions and ODD numbered questions found in sections
7.4-7.6 and 8.2-8.3.
Your mini-project is to think of a hypothesis that you might
want to test and then: 1. state the purpose of your test, 2. set up
a pretest and articulate how you came to this pre-test's formulation, 3.
run your pre-test, 4 analyze your results, 5 describe any difference you
would implement in performing a second pretest.
Here is an example of an acceptable mini project,
Coke/Pepsi . (Due to the visible haste in writing this up, this
project would be lucky to receive a B+ and would probably receive a B, so
think of it as a template for an acceptable, though not great,
mini-project.) By the way, you may work in groups to formulate your
pretest and collect your data. The write up and analysis needs to be your
own.

** Week 8 (May 12-May 16) :**
There will be quiz on Wednesday May 21th
based on the definitions and ODD numbered questions found in sections
8.4-8.5,9.3 and 10.2.
Here is an example of an acceptable mini project involving
Correlation .

** Week 9 (May 19-May 23) :**
There is no quiz on May 28th, our last day of class.
However you still have an assignment.
Namely, do the ODD numbered questions found in sections
11.2 and , 11.3. Your final exam will definitely include a problem
from each of these section (and also will definitely include a
problem from each of the sections 8.2, 8.3 and 10.2).

** Week 10 (May 28 and June 1) :**
There will be an optional math 10 review session
Tu 1:00-1:50 in Bradley 102.
Your mini project is due by May 28th at class time. The **Final Exam**
will be held in out usual room on
Sunday June 1 from 1:30-3:30 P.M.
As with our first exam, the final will have two parts. Part 1
will consist of 10 problems that are very similar to book exercises.
8 of which will be selected from the sections covered in chapters 7-11, and
2 of which will come from the sections covered in chapters 4-6.
In Part 2 you will be tested on your understanding of the various
experiments run in class. More precisely, Part 2 will consist
of 4 mini-worksheets, each based on one the following experiments:
our ESP experiment, our loaded dice experiment, our Coke-Pepsi
challenge, our graham cracker experiment, our computer name bias
experiment, our MandM experiment, the class midterm correlation
discussion (including our normality test),
and our independence test (this will
be performed on the last day of class).
