a) I will create videos for each topic and publish them in the Files area of the section’s ELMS page for you to download. (My plan is to split each topic into 15-minute segments, and publish them on ELMS at least two days before my live session - see 3b) below.) I recommend that you download and view these prior to the live sessions. One advantage to videos is that, unlike an in-person Lecture, you can rewind and watch sections over again. The disadvantage is that I can’t answer questions while you’re watching.

b) The dates on the course schedule are the days on which I will hold an online session from 11 am to noon, each class day Monday through Friday using Zoom from within ELMS. The Zoom area of the section’s ELMS page will have a link that will allow you to join the session. This live session will be your chance to ask questions – I can go back to anything in the video Lecture that you want to ask about.

**The textbook
is bundled with WebAssign access in the UM campus bookstore and includes access
to an e-version of the text**. If you purchase a stand-alone WebAssign access
code either from the campus bookstore or directly from Cengage, you will also
get access to an e-book version of the text.

Also, the text (without
WA access) will be available at the reserve desk in McKeldin
Library, where you can check one out for four hours at a time.

You should only need to purchase the enhanced version WebAssign access code once – as long as you are using the same text, your access code should be recognized, whether you re-take Stat 400 or move on to Stat 401.

For Summer 2021, online tutoring may be
available through

Office of Multi-Cultural Student Education (OMSE).

The hand-in homework assignments will be due **by
11 am** on the dates indicated in the File “Stat400 00.4 Hand-in
Homework Summer 2021”, which can be found in the Files section of the course
ELMS page. You will submit your homework online, in the Assignments section of
the course ELMS page.

**I will not accept any
late submissions for hand-in homework**.

hand-in homework #1 – from supplement identifying permutations and combinations, example K parts a through d

For this assignment, you must show your work. Simply writing an answer is insufficient.

hand-in homework #2 – from supplement conditional probability and Bayes' Theorem, Example 3 question 3-10 parts a through c

[**not**
questions 3-3 through 3-9; just the 10

For this assignment, you must show your work. Simply writing an answer is insufficient.

hand-in homework #3 – section 3.2 #26

**IMPORTANT: **Some
printings of the text have an incomplete picture for 3.2 #26.

The picture should have both diagonals in the square.

That is, O should be connected to A and to B and to C and to D.

Hint: Write out the sample space for each part.

For this assignment, you must show your work. Simply writing an answer is insufficient.

hand-in homework #4 – from supplement 5.4 supplement Central Limit Theorem, homework exercises 2 (all parts) and 5 (all parts).

For this assignment, you must show your work. Simply writing an answer is insufficient.

hand-in homework #5 – from Lecture outline Lecture 6.1c proportion, homework exercises 1 (all parts) and 2 (all parts).

For this assignment, you must show your work. Simply writing an answer is insufficient.

In general, WebAssign will be due **by 11 am** on the
dates indicated. You will submit your homework online, on the WebAssign page.

Testbank archives of past exams Search the testbank for STAT400. Some, but not all of the Exams in the testbank are identified by Instructor. You may have to resort to trial and error in finding the Exams I have posted. Some Exams also have solutions posted – most do not.

For Stat 400 Exams I have in the testbank, Spring 2012 was a 50-minute Exam, Spring 2013 & Fall 2013 were 75-minute Exams. For Summer 2021, you will have 75 minutes - 50 minutes to answer questions with 25 minutes extra for entering answers into the Quizzes section in ELMS.

All tests are in Acrobat (.pdf) format, and many print well. For ones that don’t, you can choose the “Select Image” tool, highlight each page as a block, copy it, paste it as a picture into a blank word-processing page, and print from there.
