I am emailing a link of this to everyone on the class list every week. If you are not receiving these emails or want to have them sent to another email address feel free to email me at jpmccarthymaths@gmail.com and I will add you to the mailing list.

Week 11

We looked at the normal distribution and began looking at sampling theory. Our question on the final paper is on large samples only.

Week 12

Wednesday we will spend an hour on sampling theory and then look at hypothesis testing. Hopefully all will be completed and we have Friday free. On Friday you will do Q.4 on the sample while I give feedback on your second assignments.

Week 13

We will go through the sample exam on the board and then I will answer your questions if there are any. If there are none I will help one-to-one.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage — especially those of us who struggled in the test.
