Simple Questions – January 18, 2019

This recurring thread will be for questions that might not warrant their own thread. We would like to see more conceptual-based questions posted in this thread, rather than “what is the answer to this problem?”. For example, here are some kinds of questions that we’d like to see in this thread: Can someone explain the concept of maпifolds to me? What are the applications of Represeпtation Theory? What’s a good starter book for Numerical Aпalysis? What can I do to prepare for college/grad school/getting a job? Including a brief description of your mathematical background and the context for your question can help others give you an appropriate answer. submitted by /u/AutoModerator [link] [comments]

Thinking of creating regular stickies to prompt more discussion on the subreddit

As the title says, I think it would be beneficial to introduce a few regularly occurring stickied posts that cover some of the topics discussed ad nauseam (statistical tests, homework questions, school, career, etc…) and some posts that are interesting in nature. Currently my idea is to implement the following stickies: Stupid Statistics – Every Monday a post is renewed for anybody to ask their statistical questions for the week. This post will include questions ranging from homework help to input on current projects or research (i.e. statistical test questions, data questions, etc..) College/Career Advice – Every Wednesday a new post is created for the week to ask questions about how one should approach career or college decisions. I think it would be nice if people could rate profiles or give information about their program. Goof Off Friday – Every Friday a new post is created for members to have off-topic conversation in. This can be used for memes, cool stats riddles, cool or interesting code, maybe can even be a “What are you working on?” post. Domain/Theory Discussion – Once a month a new post is written up by a willing member of the community that dives deep into a specific domain or theory of Statistics. This post can include a list of resources or good books on the topic and can stimulate discussion of that specific area of Stats. I am curious what the community’s thoughts are on this. Do you like the names of the posts? What about the timing? Is three stickied posts a week too much (I actually think two is the max number of posts that can be stickied at once)? Hopefully this will allow for other members to post more content rich posts and clear up the front page which has started to look like /r/HomeworkHelp recently. Please post your thoughts and let’s have a civil community discussion about it. submitted by /u/keepitsalty [link] [comments]

A quick and simple introduction to statistical modelling in R

I’ve discovered that relaying knowledge is the easiest way for me to actually learn myself. Therefore I’ve tried my luck at Medium and I’m currently working on a buttload of articles surrounding Statistics (mainly in R), Machine Learning, Programming, Investing and such. I’ve just published my first “real” article about model selection i R: https://medium.com/@peter.nistrup/model-selection-101-using-r-c8437b5f9f99 I would love some feedback if you have any! submitted by /u/DrChrispeee [link] [comments]
