There will be one week mini-break from homeworks. Next homeworks will appear at the end of the week - on regression methods. This week Anna Leontjeva will give a lecture on this method of predicting the "correct" numeric values.
Meanwhile, repeat the studied materials, re-visit past homeworks; and study as much statistics as you can ...

To get the practice session counted, you need to arrive no later than 15 minutes after the start of the session.
Our forum is in Piazza.
We will use Piazza for questions and discussions. In the forum you can post questions (also anonymously) about homeworks or course organization etc. And we can keep the discussion separate for different topics. You should all receive a welcome e-mail that invites you to piazza - don't ignore it and register there (it is sent to your address that is in the SIS). If you somehow don't get the e-mail you can register here (just mark that you are a student and press "Join Classes"). Then you have to fill some information about yourself, which is a little annoying, but do it anyways. The home page of the course forum is here and you can click on Q&A to get to the forum part. That's it.
