What I hear and see, I remember a little.
What I hear, see and ask questions about or discuss, I begin to understand.
When I hear, see, discuss and do, I acquire as knowledge and skill.
What I teach to another, I master.
To hear and see:
Please attend the lectures and tutorials.
To ask questions about or discuss:
Please actively participate in lectures and tutorials. Discuss with your classmate, TA and instructor.
Projects / Presentations / Project reports / Labs / Homework assignments.
To teach to another:
Teach your parents and friends who do not know much about Statistics.
Learning should be enjoyable. That is why we have labs and projects.
What we learn can be use to understand and analyze real-world issues.
If we enjoy what we are doing and learning, and can apply what we learn to real-world issues, we will learn faster and do much better.
Given that students are willing to put in efforts, Learning should not be difficult.
The instructor and the TA are here to help you.

You are required to attend all lectures and tutorials.
Generally, students who skip lectures and tutorials do poorly in the course. We want to make sure that students get a solid training in Statistics.
Attendance will be taken at lectures and tutorials. When you miss more than two lectures and tutorials, our TA will call to check why you have been missing.
This mechanism aims to help, not to punish students.
We will hand out review exercises weekly: Please do not hand them in. The TA will not grade them. However, our TA will provide solutions.
Advice:Try to work on the problems by yourself. Whenever you have trouble getting the correct answers, discuss with your classmates, consult your TA and your instructor, in that order.
At least 80% of the quizzes questions will be similar to the review exercises.
The project is intended to expose you to the use of statistics in real problems of your choice. The presentations and project reports also help improve and test our understanding of the subject..
It allows us to sharpen our skills in statistical analysis, oral presentations, written presentations, and teamwork.
