(a course in basic probability theory for life science students)

**Answers to FAQ**:

1) Students have to attend the lecture and discussion session in which
they are enrolled.

2) The discussion sessions are integral part of the course and
are mandatory. Be sure that you can and do attend them.

3) The midterm and final exam will be common for Lectures 1 and 2.
The midterm exam will take place on Monday, May 5, from 4pm to 5:50pm.
There will be no make up exams and exams will only be offered at the
scheduled time and place (or under OSD arrangements, for students with
disabilities -- in this case, contact OSD before the course starts,
and inform me about it).

4) For issues concerning enrollement, changing session, etc, go to
MS 6356. I am willing to allow as many students in as there is space
in the lecture room. But the final decision about letting students
from the wait list in is up to the Undergraduate Vice Chair.
If there are special circumstances affecting your need to
enroll in the class, please discuss them with the councelors in
MS 6356. (I am a mathematician, not an administrator, and
do not deal with issues of priority to enroll in the class.)
As far as I know it, the Math Dept does not use PTE numbers
for enrollement (check about it in MS 6356 if needed).

5) Unfortunately honors sessions, or honors contracts will not
be available.

6) I do not make exceptions. Please, do not ask for one. Treating students
fairly requires having clear and simple rules that apply equally to
all the students.
