Note to Contributors (remove this section when the chapter is complete)Edit

First, please register yourself with Wikibooks (and list yourself below), so that we know who our co-contributors are. Also, please abide by the Wikibooks Editing Guidelines, Manual of Style, and Policies and Guidlines. Thank you.

Secondly, we only need basic, clear, straight-forward information in each chapter. We are not trying to be exhaustive or complete--the value of this book is in the simple synthesis across subjects. There are other venues in which to wax eloquent on the deepness and complexities of a particular subject. Please place yourself in a "beginner's mind" as you make contributions. Please also scope each chapter so that it can be taught in a one-hour class period. If the chapter requires more than an hour to teach, it is probably too detailed.

  • To the extent possible, please use terms and concepts in the way in which they are defined in the Wikipedia and Wiktionary. This way students can refer to the corresponding Wikipedia / Wiktionary page to get a deeper understanding of the concept.

Thirdly, this is a cross-disciplinary book. We want to help people apply data science to all fields. Therefore, we need a wide variety of simple examples and simple exercises.

Fourthly, please adhere to the simple structure of each chapter: Summary of Main Points, Discussion, More Reading, Exercises, and References. We want the More Reading section to link to on-line resources. The References section may contain off-line resources. To start a new page, you should use the wiki markup from this prototype page.

Fifthly, as with any Wikibook please feel free to make corrections, expand explanations, and make additions where necessary, even if it is not "your" chapter. Use the discussion page to explain changes that might be controversial.

Sixthly, some syntax rules:

  • Please bold key terms and phrases the student should learn.
  • Put the name of functions and code snippets using the 'code' tags: <code>lm()</code>
  • Use in-line links [[ ]] to the Wikipedia, Wiktionary, WikiCommons, Wikibooks, and other Wikimedia Foundation properties.
  • Use references (<ref> </ref>) to "external" sources--both on-line and off-line.
  • If you want to add an image or graph, you should load it into the Commons rather than uploading into Wikibooks.
    • If appropriate, add the tag {{Created with R}}) when you upload the graph.
  • If using a different package than R standard packages, put the name of the package in bold in parenthesis after each function : <code>MCMCprobit()</code> ('''MCMCpack''')
  • You can use the third chapter Definitions of Data as an example of how to craft a chapter.

Finally, thank you so much for volunteering to be part of our our team!
