Here is a calendar/syllabus and due-date schedule.

Here is general information including a grading scheme.

Here are policies about collaboration; Piazza is a great way to collaborate.

Here is R in five easy pieces.

- upload site for completed studio code. The upload site time-stamps your file. If you want to amend your work before the due time (usually midnight on the day of the studio) then you can upload a second version. I will discard all but the last one submitted.
- If the upload site does not work for you (for example, if you don't have MIT certificates) then you can email completed code to dav@math.mit.edu.
**Studios**(These links won't contain reliable versions of what you're to do until a day or two before the studio.)- studio1.zip It's reasonable to make a directory called "R" and to unzip this file (then later studio2.zip...) in the directory "R". You should certainly keep in this directory a copy of CLEARALL.R (to source before finally testing code for submission) and probably also commandsFromClass.r.
- studio2.zip
- studio3.zip 2018
- studio5.zip 2018
- studio6.zip 2018
- studio7.zip 2018
- studio8.zip 2018
- studio9.zip 2018
- studio11.zip
- studio12.zip R problems mostly about bootstrapping and confidence intervals. We'll look at some in Class 25 on May 10; there is
**nothing to hand in!** - RQuiz zip file

**Studio solutions**(These links won't work until a day or two after the studio.)- studio1-solutions.r
- studio2-solutions.r
- studio3-solutions.r
- studio5-solutions.r
- studio6-solutions.r
- studio7-solutions.r
- studio8-solutions.r
- studio9-solutions.r
- studio11-solutions.r
- studio12-sol.r

**Problem sets**(The links won't work until about a week before the due date. If they don't work then, let us know.)- Problem Set 1 (due Monday 2/12 9:30 a.m.) Solutions
- Problem Set 2 (due Tuesday 2/20 9:30 a.m.)
One problem refers to "probability mass function" and "expected value." These are explained in the Class 4 preparation material, posted above.
