AMS 005 – Summer II 2008



Our grader has not graded some of the homeworks #5. Bruno looked at them carefully and found out that only 2 final grades depended on the homework 5 scores. The list below contains already these changes. These grades will be permanent by tonight 10pm.

9-1: Final course scores and grades are shown below. I want to congratulate everyone for the effort they made, you made your first steps in understanding what mathematics does and how to think in a mathematical way. The ones that, unfortunately, didn’t do so well: you have fantastic mathematical abilities (really, I could see that in your tests), you just need to tweak a little bit the way you prepare for the tests.

Note: if you find a score that doesn’t seem right, please let me know. I’ll be in my office tomorrow between 5 and 6pm if you want to have a look at your final exam.

9-1: Final exam scores are shown below. We’re working on the final scores for the course and we hope to post it still today.

8-18: Don’t forget to bring the smallest bag of peanut M&M’s for tomorrow’s class. If you can’t or don’t want to buy one, you don’t have to.

8-18:  Midterm scores are available below. Overall the class is doing excellently; everyone is starting to think in a statistical way about every day problems; although I would advise students with a score lower than 70% and who don’t go to class or office hours to review their strategy. Anyone can have a look at his/her test during office hours.

8:13: Tomorrow’s office hours will start earlier (at 3:30pm) to help students with questions about the midterm.

8-12: Calendar of class and homework lists have been changed. Check the new calendar and homework list below.

8-11: Tomorrow office hours will start at 3pm for extra help with the midterm.

8-8:  Midterm is available below.

8-5: Practice midterm is available below.

7-10:  WELCOME TO AMS5- Statistics. There’s already a lot of information about the course below.
