The trial project gives a nice illustration on the practical use of a number of the statistical methods in chapters 3 and 4, and it illustrates how the project exam may look like. The students should make an extra effort to do the trial project, and those who are interested may hand it in for correction. The deadline is Monday 29 October. Comments on the solution of the trial project will be given in week 44.
