Statistics 371, Spring Semester, 2011,

Professor Wardrop

My webpage and the course webpage are, respectively,

http://www.stat.wisc.edu/˜wardrop/

http://www.stat.wisc.edu/˜wardrop/courses/371spring2011.html

I do not have all of the course materials prepared. I will prepare them as the semester progresses. My

goal is to always have at least two weeks’ material ready if you want to work ahead. If you need to have

some idea of where the course is going, click on last semester’s course webpage and look at the names of

the chapters in its Course Notes.

Below I will describe the key components of the course materials.

1. I will post Course Notes (CN) on the course webpage. The CN will provide a development of the

material covered in Stat 371. In many cases the CN will present much more sophisticated math than

you will need to be successful in the course.

I expect you to read the CN before lecture. (I will announce and post the sections to be read before

each lecture.)

2. At lecture I will assume that you have read and attempted to understand the assigned material in the

CN. In lecture I will focus mostly on showing you how to use the material presented in the CN. I

will do this by spending most of the lecture time working out detailed examples of how to use the

material. These examples will be posted on my website as Lecture Examples. You should bring the

Lecture Examples to lecture so that you can follow what I am doing; i.e. I won’t be writing the Lecture

Examples on the board.

I have used this system for three semesters and it has worked well. Usually, I will need to spend some

lecture time reviewing the major ideas of the day’s chapter—thus, it is ok if your understanding is not

very good when you come to lecture—but for the most part I will spend lecture time working through

examples.

3. There will be 12 weekly Homework Assignments that will be due on Thursdays. Some Thursdays—

for example, two days after the midterm exam—will not have homework due. The Lecture Examples

will be similar to the homework; thus, attending lecture should make the homework easier. Also, you

are enrolled in a weekly discussion. In discussion, the TA will show you how to do the Homework

Assignment. From my point-of-view, the ideal is that you try to do the homework and then get help

at discussion. If you don’t need help then you can skip discussion that week.

After each homework is submitted I will email solutions to the homework to the class. I also will be

emailing and posting solutions to the Lecture Examples, in case you miss lecture or my presentation

needs supplementation.

4. Exams. We will have one midterm and a final. The dates of the exams are:

1

• Midterm: Tuesday, March 8, during lecture.

• Final: Tuesday, May 10, 12:25 PM–2:25 PM for lecture 1;

Friday, May 13, 10:05 AM–12:05 PM for lecture 2.

The midterm exam will be given in the lecture room, 331 SMI. The rooms for the final will be an-

nounced and posted when they are known.

Note that the final is not cumulative. The midterm will cover the ‘first half’ of the course and the

final will cover the ‘second half’ of the course.

The exam questions will be very similar to the Lecture Examples and homework exercises. Also, I

will post practice exams, with solutions, to help you to prepare for the exams.

Here are the rules for taking the exams:

• The exams will be closed book. You will be allowed the following materials only on the desk in

front of you during the exams:

Your writing instruments; your exam paper; the four pages of formulas provided

by me (see below); and your calculator.

You may not use a cell phone or similar device as a calculator. If you violate these rules or if

the proctor sees you using a cell phone or similar device, you will be charged with academic

misconduct.

• I will provide four pages of formulas, definitions, etc. for your use during each exam. Unless

something unforeseen happens, I will email these pages to the class a week before the exam;

this will help you know what you don’t need to memorize/learn. You must not bring the emailed

pages to the exam; I will hand out the final ‘formula pages’ with the exam.

A note on cheating on the exams. Don’t do it. If I catch anyone cheating, I might choose to pursue it

to the full extent through the university’s system for handling cheating, which could result in an expulsion

from school.

At the cost of extra work to me, I use a system that makes successful cheating much more difficult for

the student. I offer its details now because my goals are to dissuade cheating and to reassure honest students.

Entrapping people is not my goal.

My system is described below.

Each exam consists of a number of problems. I create three versions of each problem. The versions are,

by my design and in my opinion, of equal difficulty and cover exactly the same material/concepts. They

simply have somewhat different numbers in them. I mix the different versions of each question in many

ways to create 15 or more distinct exams. The people sitting around you possibly have no problems in

common with you or, at most, a small number of problems in common. Thus, if you copy answers from

a neighbor, chances are you will be writing down numbers that are not on your exam. When I find such

answers, I give them no partial credit.

Here is a simple example of what I mean. Exercise 1 asks you to calculate the area of a rectangle (base

times height). Version 1 has a base of 5 and a height of 12. Version 2 has a base of 7 and a height of 18. If

a person with Version 2 writes on his/her paper: 5(12) = 60, then the person will receive 0 points for this

wrong answer. If I find several such ‘borrowed’ answers on an exam I might choose to pursue charges of

academic misconduct against the student.
