Welcome to The Lab!

  • Hey Everyone!
  • Make sure that you are logged in with your zoom account!
  • Are you excited about statistics 300?
  • I know the lab is online. Did all y'all get R installed on your computer!?
  • These slides will be available at www.moondoggie.org
  • This is super crazy! I have never run a lab online before.

  • I promise to do my very best, but there may be a learning curve!
  • These slides will always be short
  • I believe you all are in breakout groups. These may change as people drop out.
  • The official policy is that if you are more than 15 minutes late you miss the lab; be on time your group will thank you! This policy will be somewhat flexible for technical reasons. However, you cannot show up 40 minutes late and expect your group to have done all the work.
  • Introduction to R and R commander

  • There are only a few questions this week
  • The principle purpose of the lab is to get you comfortable with R.
  • There are T tests and plotting questions.
  • You probably need the following commands.

  • mean(),median(),sd()
  • boxplot() and other plotting functions
  • t.test()
  • R has a convenient way to access help: "?sd" gives the help for the sd function.
  • I Study Fisheries

  • While I probably won't have a chance to tell you about my thesis; I study within season management of Dungeness Crab!
  • So if you are into natural resources...
