Moore and McCabe data sets for R

The data sets for the homework are on the web page as one big file.

To read them into your R session use:

<PRE> source(http://www.math.csi.cuny.edu/verzani/classes/MTH214/mm.R) </PRE>

Then you can access the files through pmg (they load into the variable mm) or you may access them from the command line. For the latter, you might want to attach a chapter, as in

<PRE> attach(mm) attach(Ch01) # say names(Ch01) # lists all variable names ta01_007 # show data in table 7 from chapter 01 </PRE>

The source of these data sets is <A HREF=http://bcs.whfreeman.com/ips5e/default.asp?s=&n=&i=&v=&o=&ns=0&uid=0&rau=0>whfreema.com</A>

Using Excel for statistics

In class I've been mentioning that one can use a spreadsheet to do most of the homework problems etc, but have said excel is known to have issues. In this article are several references to such: <A HREF=http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.r.general/94816>Excel issues</A>. There is also an interesting point about excel incorrectly computing 850*77.1 (which is just shy of 2 to the 16th.)

Test 1 was postponed until the 22nd of October

For those not in class last Monday, we postponed test 1 to the 22nd of October (from the 15th) so that we can have a little more material.

In Chapter 1's homework skip 1.25

THat's right, I asked you about time plots which we are going to skip, as we don't come back during the term to that concept.

How to purchase the text book for the class

Well to save money, we decided to use this book for the class text:

<A HREF=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1584884509/qid=1139500162/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-6299903-7812746?s=books&v=glance&n=283155>Using R for Introductory Statistics</A>

<P> Currently the book is going for 26.07. <P> Readers are saying the following: <quotation> This is a great stater book for basic statistics.And for being used for 28 bucks you can not go wrong. </quotation>

Well an amazon.com reader anyways. <P> I will mix in homework assignments from this book, but will still add some additional problems, as necessary.
