PowerPoint Presentations for 2002-2003

The PowerPoint presentations for 2002-2003 are here. The publication of the book has changed them considerably. The handout for nonparametrics (not covered in the book) is here.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

For Mac users, these sixteen presentations should work fine. PowerPoint is, however, a lousy medium because of poor cross-platform consistency. PC users may well have to go through each presentation fixing fonts, particularly when fixed space fonts have been relied on for spacing. More radically, there are animations in the presentations for weeks 4, 10 and 13. "Movies" are handled nicely by Macs. On PCs, they seem much more complicated. My solution has been to convert all the animations to GIFs, and made them loop. On the Mac version, I can click on an animation and it will start and stop at will. On PCs, this seems impossible to achieve (without PowerPoint having to call in QuickTime which takes over the screen and spoils the look). My solution results in the animations always cycling when the slide is being shown.

Thus, here are special PC versions of weeks 4, 10 and 13. The GIFs themselves are here. Most browsers will show you the animation if you click on them; also you might want to add them to a presentations in some cleverer way.
