Just a reminder: on March 25, 2011 the next M-CAST from Project MOSAIC will take place at 1:00pm EDT (12:00 CDT, 10:00am PDT). This will be led by Randall Pruim (Calvin College) and is entitled:
Toward a MOSAIC R Package for calculus and statistics
A team of Project MOSAIC collaborators, led by Randall Pruim, are developing an R package with data and utilities for Calculus and Statistics. Come see a demonstration of some of the features currently implemented and join a discussion of potential features to add. Some of the topics on our agenda:
• Functional derivatives and anti-derivatives
• Simplifying permutation and resampling methods
• Additional (easy) graphical tools
• Data sets for teaching statistical methods
• Interactive graphics for teaching (using RStudio's manipulate())
For more details about our plans, see the mosaic R packages wiki.
The mosaic package is already available at R-forge or from R using the command
We anticipate submission to CRAN later this spring.
