This website supports the courses of Dr. John Rasp, Associate Professor in the
School of Business Administration at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.
I am teaching five classes during the Spring Semester of 2016.
- Four sections of STAT 201, "Introduction to Business
Statistics." This is a half-unit course that introduces foundational statistical concepts. It is required
of all business majors. It is intended to prepare student to take the main business statistics course
(STAT 301). More importantly, it is intended to build quantitative literacy and quantitative competency.
- One section of STAT 440, "Forecasting." This
course is part of the Applied Statistics minor and can be used as
an elective course in the Finance major. The course focuses on regression analysis. Some attention
is also given to time series analysis, as well as non-quantitative forecasting tools.
My office hours during the Spring Semester are:
Mondays and Wednesdays, 11:00 to 11:30 a.m.
Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:00 to 4:30 p.m.
Thursdays, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Thursdays, 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
I hold my scheduled office hours in the first-floor lobby of the Lynn Business Center.
Appointments are not needed or accepted during these times — just drop by. Feel free to join in
the discussion if others are already there. I am also available in my "official" office
(526A in LBC) during much of the rest of the day. If office hours are not convenient, I am willing
to schedule appointments as needed.
