In July of 2014, I attended the ICOTS 9 workshop Teaching Statistics Using R and RStudio, in Flagstaff, Arizona. The workshop was created and conducted by Randall J. Purim, Nicholas J. Horton, and Daniel T. Kaplan and included an introduction to RStudio, Mosaic package, and RMarkdown.
Two half-day sessions convinced me of necessary changes in teaching introductory statistics courses. Previously, I used calculators, graphing calculators, MS Excel, SPSS, and even SAS and was getting mixed results at best. Many students complained frequently about monetary aspects of purchasing required and appropriate software or calculator.
In this website, I intend to use a minimum amount of programing syntax with help of RStudio and Mosaic package to create worksheets, statistical explorations, numerical summaries, and graphical displays of various data sets that will be utilized throughout my introductory statistics course.
