It shows the joint distribution of X and Y as

. This is of course impossible. Please change it to

1/6 1/6

2/6 2/6

Oops! I forgot that Wednesday 1/31 is AMC conference day! Also, I think that exercises 11.1 -- 5 (due that day) are too difficult. I am therefore cancelling that assignment. If you have done some of it, give what you have to me (or put it in my box, or send it to physis_asparagus@yahoo.com), and I will count it toward extra credit. I will create and distribute a substitute set of exercises.

We may be working on prep for AMC for awhile, so the substitute exercises will probably be due the first class after the AMC.

The Schilling School has scheduled vacations. If a student's family wants to declare a vacation of their own, that is their privilege, but it does not absolve the student of homework or other responsibilities. Work should be sent to me at

physis_asparagus@yahoo.com

at or before the time due (class time on a date announced here). Note that it is is "physis", not "physics".

I don't penalize for absence, but I will penalize for failure to turn in work.

On tests, assignments, and the like, always give reasons for your answers!

Even if it is a yes-or-no question, don't just write one word. Show me that you know *why* the anwer is what it is!

In the future I will take off a point for answers without justifications.

If you do extra credit to make up for a bad grade, your resulting grade is determined as follows: Your grade on the make-up, expressed as a percentage, adds that percentage of the difference of your original grade and one hundred to your original grade. In other words, if your original grade is O, your grade on the extra credit is E, and your resulting grade is R, then R = O + (E/100)(100-O). For example, if you got a 40 on your first try, and then got a 50 on the extra credit, your resulting grade would be 40 +(50/100)(100-40) = 40 + 30 = 70.

This means that you have nothing to lose by doing the extra credit.

Thank you for your feedback.
