What to Expect in this Course

Each student has their own learning style, so you will decide how much time you need to spend on weekly basis. I suggest, do not miss the classes, be on time, do not miss the assignments deadlines and talk to me and your class mates. This is an in-person class, so you only need canvas and your supplies, like notebook, pen/pencil, a red pen for correction, a small calculator. You will have in class exams and one project. We will talk about this in detail in class.

Types of Assessments

You will have in-person exams, online discussion boards, and handwritten hw assignments and one project.

Textbook Information

We are using a free OER book written by Matt Teachout. I will upload the book on Canvas chapter and section-wise. You do not need to download anything. We will use the online software Statkey. And it is free. 

Other Relevant Course Information

Consistency is the key to success. Be on time, ask questions, talk to your classmates, talk to me, and you will be fine. And the most important thing is not to miss classes and follow the deadlines. Feel free to email me at if you have any questions. Good luck.
