**Coverage:**the test will be on everything we've done from Chapters 1 through 3 (inclusive). More specifically:- Cdf/pdf/pmf and going back and forth between these.
- Univariate transformations: monotone continuous, max/min, F^{-1}(U) result, discrete versions, and applications to simulations of RVs.
- Joint distributions: cdf/pdf/pmf, independence, marginals, conditionals.
- Bivariate transformations: sums, ratios, general formula, normal setting.
- Order statistics.

- I will have
**extra office hours**in preparation for the test:- Friday, February 11th, 12:30-1:30 pm in Ross N620.
- Thursday, February 17th, 11:00 am - noon in Ross N638.

- Here is last year's website for the course. You can find solutions to their midterm, which will give you a good idea of length and such. Coverage may have been different that year, based on when the test was held.
- Here is a copy of the aid sheet which will be attached to your midterm test.
- A general rule: if we have derived a result in class, then you may use the result without proof on the test, UNLESS the question asks specifically for you to derive this result.

Our third quiz will be held on Friday, March 4th. It will be based on the homework assigned between February 14th and February 28th inclusive.### Quiz 4:

Our fourth quiz will be held on Monday, March 21st. It will cover conditional expectation (calculation of, bivariate normal "trick", law of total expectation, mean and variance of random sums) and moment generating functions (calculation of, use of properties, why important).### Quiz 5:

Our fifth quiz will be held on Wednesday, March 30th. Detailed coverage was discussed in class.### FINAL EXAM
