# Fall 2023 STA 2000

# @ Baruch College (CUNY)

### The above is MY syllabus for our section, FTRA. During Fall 2023 there will be a departmental final exam.

### The common syllabus for all sections of STA 2000 may be found HERE. Please do let me know if you find any significant differences between the common syllabus and the one above.

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

The population proportion is denoted by an uppercase P in my online lectures and by the Greek letter π in the textbook.

## STA 2000 Section FTRA is combined in-person and synchronous-online in Fall 2023.

### Tuesdays we meet in room 11-150 (VC) and Thursdays we meet over Zoom. Both at 4:10-5:25PM. Exams and Quizzes will take place as indicated in the schedule below

### Office hours:

TBD and by appointment on the Zoomiverse. Email me to schedule a meeting.

Contact Professor Linda W. Friedman: Linda.Friedman@baruch.cuny.edu OR Prof.Friedman@gmail.com

There will probably be some days/times when I am in my office in school. I'll let you know for those who prefer a face-to-face experience.
