Module 0: Welcome to Stat 340!

How to use this site/document/thing

These notes are divided into three sections:

  • Part I contains notes from in-class lectures and transcripts of any videos I post. Some transcripts also have side notes that you may find helpful, with more information (or bad jokes).
  • Part II contains notes and guidelines for all the assigned reading, organized by source and section. Notes are also available with individual assignments on the course site. Be sure to check for notes before doing a reading assignment, as they may tell you what to focus on (and what you can skip!).
  • The Appendices are for stuff that isn’t specifically the course content. The syllabus has lots of information, general and specific, about the course. The resources section has handy links to supplementary help, progress tracking worksheets, and more.

This document isn’t designed to be read through in order – hence all the hyperlinks. Use the sidebar to navigate to what you need (you can also bookmark specific locations in your browser), and feel free to ask (or start a discussion thread!) if you can’t find something. Happy reading!
