Class schedule


You can submit your homework either as solo or as a group of two. To communicate about your homework, create a channel in our slack group with a name starting with grp_ and then with the initials of the members of your group. For instance the TA (Arjun) and myself (Thibaut) would be grp_at. Then please add Arjun and myself as members of that group. I recommend you make your channel private. Submit the analytical parts directly to this slack group.

Computational homeworks should be submitted as a self contained R markdown file. Please submit the Rmd file as well as the generated html output.
