The lecture notes for chapters 1-3 are adapted directly from the book, but with a completely different set of worked examples. The notes for chapter 4 take a less mathematical approach than does the book, with the emphasis being on concepts needed for the development of statistical inference in chapter 5. The chapter 5 notes follow the book except for the introduction of approximate score intervals for the estimation of population proportions. These intervals have recently been shown to be superior to the exact and large sample intervals covered in the book.
