Welcome to the Sociology 300 home page!

The material in these pages is intended to supplement what you will find in the text or will hear in the lectures. If you are thinking of taking the course, or if you are new to the course, you might want to check out the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) button.

As the course progresses, you will probably find the links to the review questions, the practice quizzes, and the lecture notes helpful. For other interesting material relating to statistics (including data sources and software), check out the neat pages to visit link. A series of slideshows have also been included to assist in reviewing the material you took in Sociology 231. Several of the slideshow files are large (8+ megabytes), so downloading them on your home computer even with a 56K modem is not advisable. The files load quickly, however, if you are using a machine connected directly to the campus backbone. Also, the slideshows require Corel's Show It! plug-in to be loaded in your browser.

Ever wonder how statistics can be used in everyday life? Check out our stuff to do page.

It is worthwhile checking this page several times over the course of the semester since the material is updated periodically. Let me know via e-mail if you find any links have become "stale," or if you find links or material that might be of interest to the rest of the class.
