Homework Policy

Homework problems from the textbook will be assigned nearly every class period. Homework is due the following class period after it is assigned. Late homework will be accepted in rare cases for extenuating circumstances. Some classes may use online homework.

Attendance Policy

You are expected to attend class on a regular basis. If you do need to miss a class email me for assignments so you don't fall behind. Regularly missing class will impact your ability to learn the material as well as affecting your homework grades and should be avoided. No Make-up exams.


Availability by appointment. I try to check my email daily, for any questions that can be answered in an email format. It is best to reach me by phone, and students are provided with my number on the syllabus.

Additional Information

Statistics is often daunting to students, but the applications are all around us.  I enjoy opening up the world of statistics and attempt to use real-world examples whenever I can.
