FAQs for this week:  (email sent by Judy Wednesday afternoon)

A few quick announcements for those  who were NOT in lecture Wednesday morning:

1.  Judy has put the slides of some of the Tuesday afternoon lectures on the the program web site.  Not everyone gave me slides, so not all are there.  This might be useful for those of you who would like to use some of that material in revising a seminar paper for next Monday!   http://blogs.evergreen.edu/cpat/lectures/

2.  Remember that tomorrow is the final exam and lecture for Machine Learning.   In Lab – thursday 9:30.  For a review of concepts to study, see the ML page.

3.  Judy has put the slides for her lecture today on Data Archives (as well as Bob’s VISTAS animations) onto the program fileshare – https://myfiles.evergreen.edu/academics/programs/cpt/Handouts/Stats/week%209%20-%20R/Wednesday%20Lecture%20Notes/ Bob’s lecture notes are on the Lectures page – see (1) above.

4.  People have had a few questions about the final exam – I’ll send out a clarifying email soon.

5.  People have also asked about what to hand in as a lab report if they are doing Part I of the R lab this week (i.e., the Cyclismo tutorial).  If you are doing Part I of the R lab, hand in the conclusions of the Case Study that you do.  If you don’t get to the Case Study due to lack of time, hand in a one paragraph summary of which tutorial lessons you finished and what you learned from the tutorial.
