For Friday, 4/1 (Week 10)

March 24, 2016

The first thing I should emphasise is that it’s not a big deal if you turn the HW in late this week. I wanted to find a new article to use for this assignment and it took me a while to find something I deemed sufficiently interesting.

Before

During

  • Review of HW
  • LAB: Exploring Sampling, cont’d
  • BREAK
  • Lab: Up Movies (7 Up)

After

  • HW: Design Your Sampling Strategy

And finally, here’s a link to the midterm course survey I mentioned in class last week. Looking forward to your feedback.
