Statistics 102H home page
Dean's 102H Statistics class: Spring 2003
I made up a handout (.ps) to help guide you for the
final. You can get the answers to the Freedman problems from outside
my door. The answers to the MLE questions are: (I did these in my
headso I'm not positive they are correct. If you disagree, send me
an email.)
 n/sum(log(x))
 (n/sum log(x))^2
 squareroot(sum(x^2)/2n)
General information:
 Results of the first midterm:
 Oops: question 13 should be d not e on the key
 I'm going with 5 points per question.
 Median = 16. IQR = 15 to 19.
 Mean = 16.5. SD = 3.0
 Sample midterm (solutions)
 Background for the course: Next year 101H and 102H will be
completely rewritten. Next year 101H will cover basic
statistics and 102H will cover regression. So if you have
already had a course in basic statistics (say AP stat) you
would be best served waiting until next year.
But, if you have had a course in probability, then that is the
background I'll be assuming. (For example, 101H covered pure
probability this year.) I won't actually use this background
till later in the semester. So don't judge the course by what
I'll cover in the first few classes. If you don't have a
strong probability background, stop by and talk to me to make
sure you won't end up drowning.
 Data can be gotten from here.
