  • Everyday, massive amounts of data are generated in every part of our lives. That makes data fluency an indispensable skill to help you succeed - no matter what industry you’re in -- and DataCamp is here to help.  With bite-sized lessons in how to use R, Python, and SQL for data science, DataCamp allows you to learn in a way that fits your schedule, on any device.

    9 courses are available for those who create a free account, and 123 courses are available for individuals who sign up for a $29/month membership ($25/month is you pay yearly).  Businesses can also pay $300 per member per year for employees to learn these skills.

  • This app allows you to derive an approximation to the difference in Bayesian information criterion and to the probability of the null and the alternative hypothesis from the sum of squares obtained in an ANOVA analysis.

    Required input

    • Number of participants
    • Df ... degrees of freedom of the effect of interest
    • Whether the effect is between or within participants
    • SSEffect ... sum of squares of the effect of interest
    • SSError ... sum of squares of the error, for within-factors the by-subject error, associated with this effect
    • SSTotal ... total sum of squares, only required for within-participant designs when using effective sample size (strongly recommended, Nathoo & Masson, 2007)

  • This resource is designed to provide new users to R, RStudio, and R Markdown with the introductory steps needed to begin their own reproducible research. Many screenshots and screencasts (with no audio) will be included, but if further clarification is needed on these or any other aspect of the book, please create a GitHub issue here or email me with a reference to the error/area where more guidance is necessary.  It is recommended that you have R version 3.3.0 or later, RStudio Desktop version 1.0 or higher, and rmarkdown R package version 1.0 or higher.

  • This page presents a series of tutorials and interdisciplinary case studies that can be used in a variety of blended as well as brick-and-mortar courses. The materials can be used in introductory level data science courses as well as more advanced data science or statistics courses.  These materials assume that students have a basic prior knowledge of R or Rstudio.

  • The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) contains information about more than 140,000 terrorist incidents occurring between 1970 and 2014. The data in the GTD are gathered from information gathered through multiple news sources (LaFree, Dugan, & Miller, 2015). In this activity, we will study the extent to which chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) weapons have been used so far. We analyze whether or not their past use fits with our perceptions. Have CBRN weapons been used successfully in the past? Which weapons are more historically dangerous (more fatalities, injuries) in the hands of terrorists? What are the implications of past usage of CBRN weapons compared to other weapons in determining our priorities in counter-terrorism policies?
