Midterms are soon, and practice is essential for success. There is a new homework, in the same format of the exam.
Everybody must answer the homework, especially the students doing the course for second or third time. Homework is not optional and has to be delivered on time. If you cannot answer some questions, it is fine to deliver an empty answer.
The homework can be seen at https://anaraven.bitbucket.io/eval/2019/cmb1/hw3/.
Follow the instructions there. In particular, you must download a RMarkdown
document and edit it on Rstudio. This can be tricky,
because Windows sometime changes the
.Rmd extension for
something else. One solution is to create a New RMarkdown
document, delete all the content, copy the answer
file and paste it on the RStudio editor.
Write your student number in the correct place at the beginning of the answer file. You should be able to Knit HTML and get the same results as the document you have in paper. Please do Knit often and verify that your document has no errors. If your document does not Knit, you will not have full grade.
When you finish, send the
answers.Rmd file to my mailbox
Be sure to use the correct email address and send only one file.
Undergrad: I don’t like homework
Masters: Homework helps me check my understanding
PhD: For the love of god, give me homework so I can be certain I know what I’m doing.
