6 April 1999 Lab 3 will be available on friday. A worked solution is available for lab1. If you find any errors please let me know.

29 Mar 1999 I think that there is a possible error in the lab. Part II question 4 refers to question 4 above. I think it should be refering to question 3 of part II. I also think that in question 4 of part one that really we should be doing a test of beta_1=1 and beta_2=0, since this will actually give us an appropriate F-distribution. I am willing to here arguments to the contrary.

12 Mar 1999 Lab two available. Please also email me if you want to do the make up and have not already emailed me.

26 Feb 1999 Lab one now available. Either from me directly or on this webpage. Also a link to the data file.
