The course project for Stat 550 is to give a short (10-12 minute) talk in class on a course-related subject. The subject of the talk must be approved by Dr. Williams and could be, for example, on a section of the text not covered in class or on a paper referenced in lecture or in the text. Distance-based students will also create a presentation, please contact me for details.
Each student will write comments about other student's talks. A small part of the project grade for each student will be based on these comments of other talks.
