Bookdown is a documentation platform written in Pandoc Markdown syntax through R. You don’t need to have R or RStudio downloaded in order to access this or any bookdown document, however you do need to be connected to the internet.

The document will be updated weekly with the most recent class topics, and the previous topics will remain for your personal reference. Since this is a publicly available link you *could* share this with others in the course. If you feel it’s necessary to do that, I encourage it.

The link to this bookdown will become inactive shortly after final grades are posted.
