Show Notes

• line-fitting exercise [pdf]
• in-class exercise [pdf] and solutions [pdf].
• We also derived formulas [pdf] for the slope and intercept of the (much more convenient!) regression equation y = mx + b. The derivations are not important, but you should be able to use the formulas to find m and b. You should also be able to use the equation to predict y from x (and to the other review exercises from ch. 12). See ch. 12 below for all the details.

FPP

Do these Electoral Rules and Political Parties exercises [pdf] (see solutions [pdf]). Hint: These are good preparation for the exam.

Read ch. 12 of FPP and do the assigned review exercises here.

Misc. Exercise (Due Wednesday Before Class)

Do the Electoral Rules and Political Parties* exercises above and those from ch. 12 of FPP. (If you are pressed for time, then try a representative handful of the exercises, especially the harder questions. Upload a scan of your homework (I use the iPhone app Scannable). Note that this is a graded misc. exercise. I’m going to check whether you’ve “made progress on the assigned exercises.” If you’ve attempted too few exercises or organized your work poorly, then you’ll not receive credit.

This is due Wednesday before class.
