As a service, copies of the slides have been provided for the first two lectures. However, copies of the slides will not be provided for the remaining lectures, so the student will have to print their own copies.

The exercises in STK4900 will consist of two parts: practical exercises (using R on computers) and theoretical exercises (using calculator, pen, and paper). The students should bring a calculator for the theoretical exercises.

The time for the first week of STK4900 (and STK9900) is getting closer. This is just to remind the participants that the course is based on knowledge of statistics corresponding to STK1000 . The participants are strongly recommended to refresh their knowledge of basic statistical ideas (e.g. estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, P-values) and methods (e.g. t-tests, t-based confidence intervals, simple linear regression).
