(1) Ronald E. Walpole, Raymond H. Myers, Sharon L. Myers, and Keying Ye, Probability &
Statistics for Engineers & Scientists, Prentice Hall, 9th Edition, January 2011 (ISBN-13: 978-032-162911-1; ISBN-10: 0-32-162911-6). 816 Pages.
CLASSES: 9:30-10:45 a.m., Tuesday and Thursday (TR), Room #: Palmer Hall 3190.
CONTACTS: Office Hour: By Appointment; Office: NI 5037; Phone: ext. 8079;
Email: jian-yu.lu@ieee.org; Web: http://www.eng.utoledo.edu/~jilu/index.html.
METHODS: (1) Classroom lectures and discussion.
GRADING (the total score is 100):
(1) Attendance (20%) (If you plan to be late by 10 or more minutes for the class, you
must notify the instructor by email before the start of the class, or, in extenuating
situations, send an email explaining the reasons for late after the class to avoid a 50%
reduction of your attendance score. Your email should use a subject line "BIOE xxxx
Absence - mm/dd/year - Your Name" so that your email will not get lost in my hundreds
of emails from multiple classes, where "BIOE XXXX" is the course # and "mm/dd/year"
is the date of absence. You do not get the attendance scores if you miss the classes or you
just come to sign the attendance sheet and then leave.)
(2) Homework (10%) (Get 100% of the full homework score for on-time submission;
Get 50% for late submission; Get 0% for no submission. The due date is on the filename

Homework, Exam, and Attendance Requirements


I. Teaching Assistant (TA) Contact Information:
1. TA Contact: TAs name, phone number, and email address will be provided to students via an email
when available.

II. Student Emails:


1. Emails: Students are required to timely check their Student.Name@rockets.utoledo.edu email accounts
throughout the semester. All classnotes, homeworks, exam information, and other course related materials
are only sent to these email accounts that are provided to the instructor via myUT. One convenient way of
checking these emails frequently so that you do not miss important emails from the instructor is to forward
all emails at Student.Name@rockets.utoledo.edu to your personal email accounts if you have any. This
allows you to only check your personal email accounts.

III. Requirements for Homework:


1. On-Time Submission: Homework must be submitted on the due date given in each homework
assignment. If a student could not submit the homework on the due date, he/she will be deducted a
percentage from the full score of the homework as given in the syllabus.
2. Weight of Grade of Homework: Homework accounts for a percentage of the total grade of the class as
indicated in the syllabus.
3. Paper Size for Homework: Students must use blank 8.5 inch by 11 inch printer/copier papers for their
homework (homework is not acceptable with any other paper type). Uniform paper size is necessary for
easier copying, checking, and/or grading.

IV. Requirements for Exams:


1. Return Graded Exams for Record: Once the exams are graded and returned to the students at the
beginning of a class, they must be turned back in before the end of the class for record.
2. Close Book Exams: For any close book exams, modern electronic devices and communication devices
that could store course related materials or send/get information to/from others during the exams should not
be used. Students who are involved in academic dishonesty will not be given credits and are subject to
academic misconduct proceedings of the University.

V. Requirements for Textbook Readings:


1. Textbook Readings: Students are required to read the textbook according to the Tentative Class
Schedule before each chapter starts. The readings are necessary for students to understand the contents
covered in the class better and allow students to raise questions during the classes.
