It’s a little later than I initially wanted, but Reading 15 is finally posted on the course website. In addition to a selection from the stats textbook, I have also uploaded writeups about two additional ways to represent single variable data distributions (the probability mass function and the cumulative distribution function). The writeups are a derivative work of two sections from another stats/data science textbook1 that does a good job explaining these data representations, but the code was in Python. In addition to changing all the code snippets, I’ve expanded on some of the explanations, revised other parts, and deleted a couple of other parts so that the discussions remain relevant to our course work. There are many examples of R code, so I recommend carefully reading through it.
Here is a summary of the due dates for Reading 15:
