Texts:
 Hoff, P., "Lecture notes"
 R Development Core Team, "An Introduction to R"
(html,
pdf ).
 Montgomery, D., "Design and Analysis of experiments" (any edition,
recommended but not required).
Computing:
The supported software for 502 is the
R statistical environment.
R code will be provided for most of the inclass
data analysis examples.
Approximate schedule:
Week 1 : Experiments, test statistics, completely randomized
designs, significance testing
Week 2 : Review of normal theory tests and confidence intervals,
basic decision theory, power and sample size
Week 3 : Treatment effects model,
ANOVA
Week 4 : SS decomposition, geometric interpretation
Week 5 : Treatment comparisons, model diagnostics
Week 6 : Factorial treatment designs
Week 7 : ANOVA decomposition for the additive model
Week 8 : ANOVA for the interaction model, model comparison,
and normaltheory testing
Week 9 : Complete and incomplete block designs, Latin square designs
Week 10 : Fractional Factorial designs, aliasing, confounding,
resolution
Week 11 : Split plot designs, different size experimental units,
repeated measures
Coursework:
My current plan is to have
 about 7 or 8 regular homeworks,
 three inclass quizzes.
 a takehome midterm and a takehome final.
Homeworks and quizzes will be worth 40 points, and takehomes worth 60 points.
Late policy:
Each turned in item receives an initial grade of
x, then the actual grade is y=x exp(d/8), where d is
the number of working days after the due date I receive the work.
Everyone receives one grace day to be applied to
one homework for the entire quarter.
