50% Homework: assigned approximately weekly on Thursday, due following Thursday. There will be a 20% deduction for each late day after the deadline. You are allowed to allowed to collaborate with your classmates on the homework problems. Homework Problems will require the use of S-Plus, MATLAB or a similar computational engine.
50% Exams: there will be two exams, one roughly at midterm, and the other at the end of the semester. The exams will be take-home, and will have a computer component to them. I reserve the right to turn the second exam into a report (I will discuss this in class).
Data & Code:I will use this location to post large data sets that we will analyze (to remove the need for typing everything in). I will also occasionally post snippets of code here (with comments) to illustrate aspects of S-plus or Matlab.
