Class materials will be online on D2L under Content. For easier recollection, you can find this course from this URL: math.fdltcc.edu
We are starting the semester with zoom classes and may continue using zoom through the semester. Install a zoom client on your computer with a microphone, speaker, and camera. There are zoom apps for iphone and android phones. Test zoom out between devices.
For zoom class sessions, login to D2L and note the zoom ID and password for zoom class meetings. These probably will not change for the course; I would let you know by email if there are changes.
Check your email daily! This is how I'll communicate with the entire class.
Some videos will be put online. You can check this one out to see how they play on your devices:
Make sure that you can view this. If you want to see closed captions (CC), they are in this video. Make sure that your video player can show CC if you want them.
Get to know your star ID and password for D2L and email, and check you email daily. Information will be online from D2L or on this website when you login to the course.
Introductory Statistics Online:Creative Commons Local PDF Local PDFs by section
You should not print out the textbook. It will not disappear. You can download the PDF for viewing on your own machine if this is handy for you. You will probably read some sections more carefully than others. Sections are referenced in the tentative scheule as needed.
Statistics textbooks vary in details; you will note differences if you look through other texts and references. We will use the conventions in this textbook. One weakness of this textbook is that the tables are difficult to use and, notably, difficult to print out in readable form. Here are some common tables in better form:
Standard Normal, Binomial, and T Tables
You may have a calculator already, but make sure that it is a scientific calculator which has the needed statistical functions. We will cover this in class.
I recommend, however, the calculator TI-30XS Multiview. This does what you need. Fancier calculators may be more difficult to use. The bookstore sells the TI-30XS Multiview for under $20 . Bring your calculator to class. You must have it for exams and quizzes, so bring it to class everyday and get familiar with it.
Do not play games, email, text, chat, surf, talk, etc. etc. on your PEDs. Turn these things off during class and put them away. PEDs and computers are not allowed for exams or quizzes.
Here are some online calculators, however, you may use for your homework.
Basic Statistics and Standard Normal Distribution Calculators

This course addresses FDLTCC liberal education requirements (Competencies Across the Curriculum) in problem solving and technology. You should come to class everyday! This is the easy way to do well in any course, and it is especially true for math classes. There are exercises in the text for you to do, and these are usually answered at the end of each chapter. You will also get homework assignments on handouts, and you should complete then hand these in at the beginning of the next class. You homework grade is based on completing and turning in these homework handouts. You will also get sample exams which will be similar in length and content to the in-class exams. Let me know if there is are accommodations you need for the class.
