  • Review the importance of reproducibility in scientific research

To do for Monday

  • Start homework 5
  • Read chapters 2 and 3.1-3.3 in An Introduction to Statistical Learning
  • Read chapter 25 in R for Data Science
    • You can skim chapters 22-24 if you like. I personally am not a fan of how the book introduces statistical modeling, but you may find these chapters more intuitive. Regardless, we will cover the major packages and functions for estimating and visualizing models in class.
