Exam #2 – Wednesday, Nov 13

As I announced in class yesterday, we will take our second midterm exam this Wednesday (Nov 13).  The exam will mostly be on the material on probability that we’ve covered since the 1st exam, but will also include an exercise on linear regression.

To prepare for the exam:

    • review the class outline pdfs (and your class notes) going back to “Linear Regression” through the most recent one that we discussed last week (“Counting Principles: Permutation and combinations”) (see the Schedule page)
    • review Quizzes #2 & #3 (solutions have been uploaded to Files)
    • review Exam #1, Exercise #4 (the last exercise on the exam, especially the parts about linear regression; Exam #1 solutions have been uploaded to Files)
  • review the following WebWork exercises and their solutions:
    • HW4-PairedData: #3, 20, 21, 22
    • HW5-Probability: #1-5, 10
    • HW6-EqualProbabilities:#1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9
    • HW7-ConditionalProbability: #3, 4, 6, 7
    • HW8-Counting: #4, 7, 8, 9 (solutions to HW8 will be available after it closes; the solutions to the other HW sets are available now)
