From Lecture Theatre A, use the emergency exit
on the left at the front of the room,
then assemble on the grass in front of Computer Science.
From the Computer Classroom: directly down the stairs to the exit
under the archway on the South side of the building, then assemble as above.
A more detailed syllabus than the information in the course catalogue is available
The material covered in lectures is similar to that in parts of my book
Design of Comparative Experiments (Cambridge University Press, 2008).
Each week, the relevant sections will be listed here.
10% of your overall marks are for presenting the answer to one question from a
problem sheet in a tutorial. If you do this more than once, you will be given the
score of your best answer.
Written coursework to hand in
These questions are all taken from previous problem sheets or practical
worksheets. A further 10% of your overall marks are for this.
This problem sheet will be handed out in Week 9.
If you want more feedback on your presentations or written work, feel free to come and ask
me in Room 317.
