Lecture notes: Statistics notes # 1.


Study for your exam on Wednesday.  Go over your notes and the lecture slides - run them and give yourself the lectures to ensure you really understand the materials. Study quides for all exams are on the Home Page of the web site.

Discussion group Assignment

Write the methods and results sections of your paper.

This is an important chance to get feedback on your paper, so use it!!   
You should already have written your introduction and design for Week 8.  Now write up your methods, and integrate them with your introduction. This is a lot for a weekly homework assignment – you may not get through all of it – but if you are wise you will use this as an impetus to get the guts of your paper done now, and to get feedback on it in group.  For hints on how a final paper looks, go to the Guide for reading articles.

During discussion group you will form dyads and interview each other about your Methods sections.
The interview guide you will use - which is the template you should follow in writing your final draft - is here.
