EXPECTATIONS: Quantitative Methods is a second course in
statistics. Like Statistics, Quantitative Methods is a problemsolving course. The only way you can learn statistics in by doing
statistics. Specific tools will be introduced in the lecture and
examples will be given. Additional problems will be assigned for
homework and you are expected to complete the problems before the
next class period. The assigned problems will be collected at
that time and graded. Ten percent per day will be deducted from
the total possible points for problem sets and computer
assignments that are turned in late. If you are unable to attend
class you may fax or email your homework on the day it is due to
avoid a penalty. Problem sets and computer problems will not be
accepted for a grade after they have been graded and returned to
the class.
ABSENCES: Only absences due to official Shepherd College
activities, illness, or family emergencies will be excused. If
you are unable to take an exam on the day it is scheduled you must
contact me by phone or email BEFORE the exam. Exams missed due to
an excused absence will be made up the day the student returns to
classes.
Inclement Weather: In the event of inclement weather, I will
leave a voice message on my office phone by 9:00 a.m. indicating
my class arrangements for that day.
