#### Course Information

 Bret Hanlon and Bret Larget are the professors for Statistics 571 in Fall 2011. We share a common course syllabus, will work from the same lecture notes, give common homework assignments, and give common examinations. We will strive to cover the same topics at nearly the same pace. We even share a common first name! Students are free to attend the alternative lecture when desired.

#### R Handouts

Professor Larget has written an introduction to R for Statistics 571. This document will be extended during the semester. The accompaning data files are useful if you want to try out the examples on your own.

Extra Files
cows.txt
temperature.txt
sockeye.txt
pseudoscorpions.csv

The Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) contains multiple documentation for R. Here are three examples that are most appropriate for an audience of introductory statistics students. If you have a desire to learn R on your own faster than what we do in class, these documents are a good place to begin.
