You might be interested in this checklist which I use when setting exams.

There is now a web page to accompany the new fifth edition of "A Basic Course in Statistics": see www.basicstatistics.co.uk.

Here is a worksheet which explains how Excel can be used to perform tasks in Probability & Statistics. If you want to do the exercise at the end (worth 10 marks, replacing your worst quiz), the data are here, now updated for this year.

Here are the solutions to the exercises (pdf file).

The fourth coursework is now ready for downloading: it is due in by Tuesday 5 April.
Follow instructions on the
coursework generator page.

This year there is to be a handout which includes all the lecture notes previously published on this web page, all the tutorial sheets, and additional material as well. You are welcome to look at the notes available from this page, but it will not be necessary to print them out.

#### Statistics

#### Probability

#### Statistics again
