Spring 2019

# Preparation

Show up.

## Thursday 24th Jan

• Install either R or RStudio on a computer you have access to (or check it out on the lab machines). Ideally, but not essentially, bring your laptop to class.
• Be ready to talk about your preparation for the semester and what you'd like to accomplish.

## Tuesday 29th Jan

• Read Sections 1.1 to 1.6 from the textbook. (There are videos for it too, linked that start of each section; I haven't watched them but if you'd like to give them a try instead, feel free and we'll see how it works out.) Come with questions about anything that is not clear.
• It's a good idea to have started the R labs (first two on the labs page of the textbook site). You don't need to get them done until Thursday, but there'll be a bit of time today to troublseshoot.

## Tuesday 5th Feb

Be prepared to show off the work you've been doing to Kaethe.

## Thursday 7th Feb

Today Kristin will come to our class to talk about the campus climate survey, which is being prepared by the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force. Please take the survey before class. Answer the questions IN ORDER and note how long the survey takes. Note questions (on the google doc) where you struggle to understand what is being asked for or otherwise feel confused by the set up. Please leave comments before Friday!

## Tuesday 26th Feb

We should finish up our discussion of probability today. Come prepared with questions from assignment 2. Start reading sections 3.1/3/2 from the book which we will discuss, time permitting. We should also make sure that the survey is ready to be implemented by the end of the week!
