Problem of the Week
Hilton Memorial Lecture
The course project for Math 570 assumes the role of final exam. The project is done through a team effort, and consists of:
Each team is composed of three to four team members. As a project may involve different skill sets, and different team members may contribute to the team in different ways, the diversity among the team is appreciated. Hence, the following restrictions are imposed.
Please coordinate among teams to ensure that the formation of all teams complies to the restrictions above.
Both the preliminary report and the final report have the following components.
Computer programming code is not a part of and should not be included in a report.
Students are advised to read the following book and article before writing the report.
The following style requirements are to be fulfilled for the reports.

There is no good data set; there is no bad data set. There are only data sets that are interesting. An interesting data set should have roots in real applications, and should have a multi-dimensional or high-dimensional nature. Preference are given to those which were collected from lab science, social science, and engineering. Projects are not necessarily evaluated on how many fancy methods have been used, but instead, how well the team can utilize different approaches learned in the course to undertake the statistical tasks they desire.
Below are some resources for obtaining data sets:
