11/6: The homework assignment for next Monday got mangled. It is now corrected.
11/5: I graded the optional homework on logarithms, allotting 8 points to the data experiment and 8 points to the two formulas (since most people who did one of those did both, as suggested). See my "Lecture 11/12" of 2003 for some comments that bear repeating here. I'll make a "Logarithms" folder where you can put your papers for public consumption.
9/30: Instructions for the second paper
9/3: Instructions for the book review
8/30: Homework angst ._. Here are the exercises.
8/27: Updated announcements
8/24: The welcoming message
8/24: Formal course handout
