Mathematical Notation [PDF only]
This is a sequence of five documents for you to create using your favorite full-featured word processor. The object is to learn to use proper notation and also learn some statistics along the way. There is an Acrobat PDF handout detailing how to use the equation editor.
Daily Calendar [PDF only]
Complete calendar including activities, due dates, exams, and lecture schedule. This document requires the Adobe Acrobat reader.
Video Series
There is a video tape series that presents much of the material we will be covering in an exciting, sometimes eccentric, manner. You may wish to watch these as a means of reinforcing what you've heard in class or read in your book. Do not follow the suggested viewing on this page, it goes with the old textbook.
Lecture Notes
These online lecture notes were written for the old textbook (Triola) and will not correspond to the new textbook (De Veaux). For that reason, they will be of limited use for my classes, but many people on the Internet still find them useful.
Links to Statistical Information
Here is a brief listing of articles, lists, and other information I've found on the web.
This is a project I wrote for an ICTCM short course in May 2002. It explains the different kinds of simulation and allows you to perform some simulations online. This corresponds to the material in section 3.6 of the text. This simulation requires MS Internet Explorer. The Javascript will not work with Netscape Navigator.
TI-82 / TI-83 Programs and Instructions
Instructions for using the TI-82 or TI-83 graphing calculator.

Note: All Internet access from within the College may be monitored. Using the Internet during exams is prohibited except when specifically instructed otherwise. I consider such usage to be cheating and as such is subject to the academic dishonesty policy of the College. I can identify web pages visited and who visited them.
