We had a wonderful webinar on February 15, 2019, that focused on R-based activities developed by two our our summer 2018 StatPREP participants. Greg Kent (Yakima Valley College) presented an interactive activity for students focus on the topics: “Why is it important for samples to be random? In this activity, we use the Gettysburg Address to show the unintentional biases that appear when samples are not randomly selected.”
Following this, Jeremy Koziol (Spokane Falls Community College) presented how he is switching to an open source book authored by Kate Kozak and using RStudio. While this may seem like a big step, Jeremy demonstrated how his students are able to cut and paste existing code to do statistical activities. If you have a RStudio Cloud account, you can access his code.
