The above is MY syllabus for our section, FTRA.  During Fall 2024 there will be a departmental final exam.   The common syllabus for all sections of STA 2000 may be found TBD.  Please do let me know if you find any significant differences between the common syllabus and the one above.

As we go along I may note the very few things that may be explained differently in the online lecture notes in this website and the assigned textbook
