  • The class as a whole has been doing a consistently good job on previous problem sets. We realized that assigning this problem set would be excessive.
  • As mentioned in class, there is an opportunity for you to earn an extra 10 points by participating in WeiChong Khor's prediction market. His gmail address is khorweichong. Because there is no Homework 7, we encourage you to actively participate in WeiChong's market. Please send a one-paragraph summary to stat252spring2007@gmail.com by Sunday, June 10 highlighting your experiences, the problems you encountered, and how your experiences can be improved.
