Basic
derivatives and integrals: you may use this on exams. It is your
responsibility to print off a copy and bring it to the exam.


Midterm
1 review


Midterm
2 review


Final
exam review: now includes review problems and some changes (for
example, the section on the coefficient of determination in linear
regression models has been substantially revised).

 Announcements:


Tues 5/3: There will be no quiz today. Homework is due. We will
spend class time reviewing for the final.

Mon 4/18: Regarding sec. 12.1 #8c&d: use properties of linear
combinations of normally distributed independent rv's (see pp. 220
 221). In particular, Y_2  Y_1 is normal with mean E(Y_2) 
E(Y_1) and variance V(Y_2) + V(Y_1). For (c), determine the
probability P( Y_2  Y_1 > 1000) = P( Z > (1000  (E(Y_2) 
E(Y_1)))/sqrt{V(Y_2) + V(Y_1)} ). For (d), find the zvalue for
which the probability statement P(Y_2  Y_1 > 0) = P(Z >
(E(Y_2)  E(Y_1)))/sqrt{V(Y_2) + V(Y_1)}) = 0.95 is satisfied,
keeping in mind that E(Y_2)  E(Y_1) = 1.3(x_2  x_1). (Thanks to
Kevin for pointing this out).

Sat 4/16: Two notes on assignment 10. 1) The sections assigned
should be from chapter 12, not 14 (this has been corrected). 2) I
meant to post the problems from 12.2 earlier: do as much of 12.2 for
assignment10 as possible, and turn in the rest with assignment 11.

Fri 3/25: I will not have internet access at home over spring break.
You can still send me emails, but expect some lag in reply time.

Wed 2/23: The BSU Math Department is launching an REU (research
experience for undergraduates) this summer. More information can be
found here.


Fri 2/11: The first midterm will be held in class (3:304:30pm) on
Tuesday 15 February. You will be allowed one half of one side of an
8.5'' x 11'' sheet of paper (total surface area: 8.5'' x 5.5'') for
handwritten notes and a scientific calculator. No other notes or
technology will be allowed for this exam.


Thurs 2/3: A sheet of basic derivatives and integrals has been
posted. You may use this for exams (but not quizzes).


Fri 1/21: I do check email over the weekend. If you have homework
questions, feel free to drop me a line.


Tues 1/18: Please download the Skills
Assessment. The purpose of this assessment is to help you
determine what you need to review in order to maximize your success
in this class (Math 360). Try to work these problems without
using a calculator, textbook, or other notes. Any problem that gives
you trouble indicates an area that you should review. This is not an
assignment and will not be graded.


Also, a corrected calendar has been posted.


Sun 1/16: Welcome to Math
360. Please take a look at the course Syllabus and Calendar at the
