Data Sets:










OnLine R Software:
To
get a free copy of “R” software to download, go to http:/cran.fhcrc.org/
I recommend downloading [1] the latest version, [2] just the 32 bit
version, using default download settings, [3]
also download version 2.15.1, 32 bit version only. So, when done, you will have 2 versions of
R, the latest and the 15.1 version.
By having the 15.1 version, you can use Jon Graham’s U.M.
intro RCommander addition, rather than the more generalizable but less user
friendly (for intro students) default RCommander offered.

R Intro Manuals:
Verzanni
R—what I use sometimes for lab ideas
R for Biology
UsingR—good
book with commands, etc.
RTINN book: Europeans use TINN like we use RCommander
R commands “cheat sheets”
Misc Commands sheet

R Commander:Some students prefer using R Commander rather than just RConsole. Ubuntu users must use R Commander, since it is the only user interface offered
What is R Commander?
special RCommander for use
with R version 2.15.1

Introductory R Session:
module 1 module 2 module 3
module 4 Verzani book

BREAK++++++++++++ 

NOTE: The PRESS algorithm I wrote for the sat_lab9.csv data needs to change line # 6 to (n7) instead of (n5) as given, in order to have the Cp work out correctly—this number stands for 7 parameters in model (b0 through b6)—then program will work accurately
