MIS 0855: Data Science Fall 2016

Section 006, Instructor: Shana Pote

Final Exam Reminder

Just a reminder that your final exam will be on Monday, December 19 at 8:00am in the same room as class.  Please make sure that all missing assignments, quizzes and weekly questions are done before the start of the exam.  Grades will be submitted after the exam.

Extra Credit, due date changed to 8:50am Monday 12/12/16


As decided by the class on Friday (if you were a few minutes late, you may have missed this), consensus was to change the due date/time of the Extra Credit assignment to Monday, 12/12/16, by the end of class (8:50 am). It was originally due at the end of Group Final Presentations on Friday 12/9/16. So you now have until Monday, 12/12/16, at 8:50 am, the end of Exam Review, to submit the Extra Credit.

You can find the original posting here.

Have a great weekend!

Welcome back! Webex recording of Monday’s lecture is posted.


Welcome back from Fall Break! I hope you’re all rested and ready to finish out our semester.

Monday’s lecture has been recorded on Webex and posted on the Class Captures page of this community site. Please make sure you watch before Wednesday’s class, and come with any questions on the material.

Also, the videos I show in the recording didn’t translate well (the audio is garbled and difficult to hear). Here are the links so you can watch them from their source:

See you all Wednesday,
