MATH 2625 Course Content Page 

Week 14 (4/20 to 4/26)

The focus of this week is to complete all the scheduled reading and assignments and start working on the term paper. The term project paper will give you a hands-on experience in statistical data analysis. The Term Project description is available in the Home page since the beginning of the semester.

 

To assist you in doing the project paper, I have made two project examples for you to follow. Please see the term project description for these two examples. You can just follow either one of the two ideas for your term project paper. However, I prefer that you create your own project idea. Paper using your own idea is likely to get a better grade.

 

Please try to following the suggestions (steps or sections) in either one of the two project examples to work on your project. There is no limitation on the length of the term paper. Three to five pages of writing including the statistical tables and charts would be enough. Please feel free to consult with me on any questions about the project.

1. Continue to complete the rest of the assignments.
