I am learning not only stat but your methology of teaching as wel, and, by the same way, I´m improving my English level.<br />Kisses from Basque countryMaite Gonzalezhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13529173670180708040noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1998851118369984314.post-65171647693495409372013-05-01T14:15:30.824-07:002013-05-01T14:15:30.824-07:00I greatly appreciate the time you've given to ...I greatly appreciate the time you've given to provide us with extra practice problems (and solutions!).

However time is a limited resource for Adhikari, TAs, etc.<br /><br />http://www.openintro.org/stat/down/OpenIntroStatSecond.pdf This is a free open-source pdf book, "Stat 101 textbook". I read that is a good textbook, & recall that it is integrated with R code examples, for those who also wish to learn R alongside the Stat 101 concepts. I downloaded this textbook, & noticed that it has 1 end of chapter exercises for each chapter 2 Appendix A, which has solution to all odd-numbered end of chapter exercises.<br /><br />my recommendation: to pair each existing Adhikari lecture problems (for example lec2.3 Sampling Without Replacement- The Hypergeometric Formula p12of 30 "Simple random sample")<br /><br />with<br /><br />1 or more relevant OpenIntro odd-number end of chapter exercises<br /><br />It would be great if Adhikari or the TAs could spend time on this. If not, perhaps some students could do so, & Adhikari/TAs could "verify"/"quality check" that the pairing is indeed relevant/appropriate.<br /><br />In addition, perhaps for a subset of "verified" OpenIntro problems, video "whiteboard" solution mp4 files could be made for these problems (Note: http://www.openintro.org/stat/videos.php page says some "Videos are coming on May 6, 2013", so maybe some useful OpenIntro videos may already exist in time for a future offering of Stat 2.X).<br /><br />https://www.edx.org/courses/BerkeleyX/Stat2.2x/2013_April/wiki/Stat2.2x/ <br /><br />Perhpas a section could be added to the Stat 2.X wiki page for Staff & students to list & verify these pairings to OpenIntro problems.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1998851118369984314.post-30195297835430140912013-04-30T06:23:55.544-07:002013-04-30T06:23:55.544-07:00Hi Prof A

Wait. Make that 15 :)<br /><br />Compared to other online courses I have taken, Stats 2x provides a rather large number of exercises, which is key to understanding in my opinion. I like the quizzes and I do every single one of them, trying to get a perfect score (that's how I'm wired, when I play I play to win). I really, really appreciate all the work you put into this!bloghttp://blog.mafr.de/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1998851118369984314.post-51699320999023545832013-04-19T10:52:13.027-07:002013-04-19T10:52:13.027-07:00I love Introduction to Counting & Probability ...I love Introduction to Counting & Probability for this week's topics, from the Art of Problem Solving , by David PatrickThe Momindanthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03316857546792671970noreply@blogger.com
