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 http://www.math.ilstu.edu/dhkim/M356/sch356.html. 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.
