STAT 440
Forecasting

Forecasting techniques are used in a wide variety of fields. This course focuses on quantitative, statitistical procedures, primarily regression analysis. However we will touch on several other quantitative methods, such as spreadsheet modeling, and will also devote some time to selected non-quantitative tools. This course fulfills requirements for the Finance and General Business majors, and the Applied Statistics minor.

Daily Review Assignments

The purpose of daily review assignments is to provide timely review and feedback on the basic course concepts and computational mechanics covered each day in class.  This structured regular review facilitates mastery of course material.  Review assignments are due at the beginning of the following class.  They are checked simply for reasonable effort, not accuracy. Completing them is worth a small portion of the course grade (roughly equivalent to two quizzes). Daily review assignments are distributed in class.  They are also available from the links below. (Many of the review assignment webpages have links to more detailed solutions, in case you run into difficulty while working on them.)

Homework

Several extended homework assignments, including one semester-long project, are included in the course. These assignments are longer and more involved than the Daily Review assignments. Their purpose is to take the basic concepts and calculations of the course (which are reinforced by the daily review) and to apply them to "real world" situations, so you may be able to use the material in the course in your professional and personal life.
