Lecture:  This course consists of three parts: regression, design of experiments, and 
computer simulation. Tentative schedule is as follows: In part I, we cover the simple and multiple linear regression and logistic regression in the first four weeks. In part II, we review one-way ANOVA and continue to two-way ANOVA, randomized block design, Latin square design and full factorial design.  In part III, we cover more computationally intensive topics. For weekly schedule and exam dates, refer to Lecture notes will be available on the course website.
Homeworks:  Homeworks are assigned at regular intervals. Each student is expected to turn in 
his/her work by the specified due date. On rare occasions, extension of the due date is granted at the instructor's sole discretion. 
Lab: Friday classes are held in the computer room. Hands-on experience with data are 
emphasized. We use SPSS, SAS and R for computing and data analysis purpose. Since this is a computing oriented course, syntax based programming is strongly encouraged. Lab notes will be posted each week prior to the class.
Lab Quiz: Quiz problems are assigned in lab each week. Students are expected to turn in the answers in timely manner.
Grade: Letter grade does not follow a curve. If your grade is at least 90, your letter grade is A; at least 80 and letter grade is B and so on.
