Beyond my official duties, I helped develop a lengthy study guide for my students. (See parts 1; 2; and 3a and 3b). Though, in the guide, I credited Don Allers as the author, I more than doubled the length of his document and substantially improved the exposition.

I am working on typing up my class notes for STAT 202 (Basic Statistics) into something that I hope will replace the textbook. This work is discussed here.
