Thanks to everyone who stayed for lab last night; I hope that it was useful.
To facilitate some of the difficulties with the first homework, I’m extending the due date to Wednesday, November 1 by midnight. Additionally, under the Homeworks tab on the course webpage, I’ve included some bits of R code that may be useful to help solve questions 1 and 2.
Homework 2, now posted, will still be due the following Monday, but requires significantly less R to complete.
I’ve also posted Homework 4 for those interested (I am revising Homework 3 and 5 which are more heavily R-based).
