#### Presentations

A component of Applied Environmental Statistics this year was the creation of a video describing a moderately complex data set. This project was supported in part by the experts at the ALT Lab as well as by the donation of data sets from laboratories in Life Science and Biology. |

#### ALT Lab Open Hours

The ALT Lab will be open for ALT LAB POP-UP EDIT LAB HOURS on Monday the 5th and Tuesday the 6th from 2pm-5pm. If you need some assistance completing your projects take advantage of these last times. The location of the pop-up edit lab is that open space in the 4102 suite. |

#### Free-Day Ramblings

On the Wednesday before turkey-day, we met (and when I say we, I mean the five of us), and talked about some quantitative techniques beyond that discussed in this course. They included: - Scraping data from websites
- Dealing with spatial components, mapping, points, lines, polygons, and rasters
- Function writing
- Dealing with loops.
Attached below is the example code for scraping water data from USGS we used as an example. |

#### Analysis Choices

OK, the tallies are in! Here are the rankings The clear winner in the "pre-conceived what the heck is this analysis" preferences. Here are the popularity rankings: - Linear Regression
- Correlation
- 1-Way ANOVA
- 2-Way ANOVA (tie for 4
^{th}) - Logistic Regression (tie for 4
^{th})
Unfortunately, if you look at the first image above there is a glaring error. Namely that it did not record your name along with your preferences... Now, it is not the time to point the finger and assign blame here (ok Dyer messed up), so we will have to have you run your preferences again (Dyer made sure not to mess up this time). We can do it in class on Wednesday. |
