Academic Integrity Policy


Waitlisted students should attend lectures and submit all homework and lab assignments until their waitlist status is resolved. Likewise, students who are not yet enrolled or waitlisted but are considering taking Math 11 should attend lectures and submit all assignments until they have decided on their course schedule. Math 11 moves very fast at the beginning, and there are homework and lab assignments due Wednesday and Friday of Week 1.
Discussion sections will not be held on Thursday, September 28. The first discussion sections will be held on Thursday, October 5.
Future announcements will be posted in TritonEd rather than here.

Office Hours and Other Resources

How successful you will be in Math 11 will depend primarily on how much effort you choose to put forth on your own. Remember that for a 5-unit class, you should expect to devote a total of 15 hours per week to the course, including lectures and discussion sections. There are also a number of resources available to help you succeed in the course. You are encouraged to take advantage of these resources, especially if you are having difficulties in the course.

Textbook Information

The textbook for the course is Stats: Data and Models, 4th Edition, by Richard D. De Veaux, Paul F. Velleman, and David E. Bock. Because the homework problems come from the textbook, it is very important that you have the 4th edition. Although the bookstore sells the textbook together with MyStatLab access, you will not need access to MyStatLab for this course.
You have the option of purchasing an electronic version of the textbook for $69 instead of purchasing a physical textbook. If you choose this option, you will have access to the e-book only until the end of the quarter (which means you would need to purchase it again if you drop or fail the course and have to re-take it), though you have the option of getting a free trial for 14 days before you must commit to paying the $69. To purchase the e-book, log into TritonEd, go to “Content” and click on “MyStatLab Pearson eText”. Then follow the instructions. Once you have paid for access, you should be able to view the e-book by going to “Content” and clicking on “MyStatLab Pearson eText”.
The international edition of the textbook has different numbers in a few of the problems and is not suitable for this course
