Course Information for 2017/2018

My teaching for the 2017-18 academic year will be leading the Statistics Practicum (MA675-676) course sequence. This course lies at the heart of our MS in Statistical Practice (MSSP) program.

The following is central to my perspective on the process of learning:

"The fish trap exists because of the fish; once you've gotten the fish, you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit; once you've gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning; once you've gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can have a word with him ?"

-- Chuang Tzu
