Fall 2014
MATH 4600/6600 HOMEPAGE
Ted Shifrin

 

MATH 4600/6600, Probability, meets MWF 10:1011:00.

Text: Sheldon Ross, A First Course in Probability, 9th edition. Pearson, 2014.

Other sources are:

There will be three midterm exams (15% each), a final exam (35%), occasional pop quizzes (10%), and weekly homework assignments (10%). Homework will be collected every Friday. Graduate students must do at least one theoretical problem on each assignment.

I am aware of various sources of solutions for problems in the text. You are only cheating yourself if you pass off someone else's work as your own. The pop quizzes and homework problems not taken from the text are intended to help keep you honest.

Although I encourage you to work on homework with a few other students, you must write up your assignments by yourself. You must comply with UGA's Academic Honesty Policy; see in particular items 3, 4, 5, and 6. All students are responsible for maintaining the highest standards of honesty and integrity in every phase of their academic careers. The penalties for academic dishonesty are severe; note that "lack of knowledge of the provisions of this policy is not an acceptable response to an allegation of academic dishonesty."

Final exam:  Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 811 am.
