- Activity #1 - due on Wednesday, September 2
- HW #1 - due on Wednesday, September 9
- HW #2 - due on Monday, September 14
- Activity #2 - due on Wednesday, September 16
- HW #3 - due on Wednesday, September 23
- Activity #3 - due on Wednesday, September 23
- Small Group Project #1 - presentations will begin on Wednesday, September 23 - PPT or PDF is due on the day of your presentation
- Create an R script or markdown file that applies at least three probability distributions to pratical problems of interest to you. You may work by yourself or with a partner on this project. Ideally, your solution will have a theoretical and a simulated solution. However, if the theoretical solution is unknown (or unknown to you) then you can stick with simulation. You must include at least one continuous distribution and at least one discrete distribution during your presentation. Presentations to the class should last from 7 to 10 minutes.

- HW #4 - due on Wednesday, October 7
- Small Group Project #2 - presentations will begin on Monday, October 12 - files (PPT or PDF and your R code) are due on the day of your presentation
- Create an R script or markdown file that compares at least two estimators for an estimtation problem of interest to you. You may work by yourself or with a partner on this project. At least one of your estimators should be based on bootstrapped ssamples. In addition to point estimates, you should also make appropriate use of confidence intervals. The duration of your presentation should be 10 to 12 minutes. The question and answer session after each presentation will be 2 to 3 minutes long.
