  • 2014-10-20 17:30: Here's who is where for their exam, by first letter of last name:

    • B-SHE: (old) Gym (in the R wing)
    • SHI-V: S 309

  • 2014-09-09 11:30: StatCrunch and MyStatLab (online exercises and e-textbook) are recommended (but not required). If you bought a new textbook, you will have a card with an access code for these. If you bought a used textbook, you won't (the access code can only be used once). But you can buy access separately, as below:
    • StatCrunch: go here, click on Students Buy Access.
    • MyStatLab and e-textbook: go here. Enter a course ID in the box (Ken's one is butler33143), create a Pearson login (or log in with one that you already have), Use a Credit Card or PayPal.
  • Facilitated Study Groups as below:
    1HarrishTue 16:00-17:00AC 221
    2TharshikaWed 09:00-10:00M 170
    3HarrishFri 11:00-12:00AC 221
    4TharshikaFri 12:00-13:00AC 221
    These sessions are optional, but students have found them helpful. (You only need to go to one, since all the sessions cover the same ground.)

    Note also that the Academic Advising and Careers Centre offers study skills services. There will be a short announcement about that in class on Tuesday.

  • 2014-09-07 20:00: Are you in Tutorial 26? If so, note that there is no TA available for tutorial 26 on Monday Sep 8 only.

  • 2014-09-05 11:30: today's notes for Ken's section are up (see above left).
  • 2014-09-02 11:35: For the second lecture (Thursday or Friday, depending on your section), read chapter 1 (very short) and chapter 2 of the textbook.
  • 2014-09-02 11:30: If you haven't signed up for a tutorial yet, make sure you do. There are some spaces left (not many): the faster you do this, the better your chances of getting a time that suits you. There is (or will be) space for everyone to be in a tutorial.
