Welcome to Computational Probability and Statistics at Olin College, Fall 2010 Session II.


Allen B. Downey.  If you would like to make an appointment with me, check my calendar.


The class meets Monday and Thursday from 3pm to 5pm in AC318.  Session II runs from Oct 21 to Dec 9.


We will be using the fabulous new book,
Think Stats: Probability and Statistics for Programmers, by Allen B. Downey.  Electronic versions are available online.  I will distribute hard copies in class and ask for $10 to defray costs.


Your work in this course will include
  • Homework: mostly exercises from the book, due each Friday at noon.
  • Quizzes: we will have four quizzes.
  • Project: over the course of the semester you will work on a series of investigations using a dataset you choose to answer an interesting statistical question.
