Learning outcomes

By the end of the semester you should be able to
1) recognize different types of experiments
2) estimate and test linear combinations of parameters, treatment means, and variance components
3) understand and incorporate fixed and random effects, factorial and nested treatment structures, and polynomial regression terms.
