Read pages 313-319 (stop when you get to “confounding”), then work on exercises 6c, 14, 15, 17, 30 from pages 326-328.
After break, we’ll be starting work on our midterm projects. More details about the project will be discussed next week, but you should get started thinking about ideas you’d like to investigate. Listen to the Freakonomics or Hidden Brain podcasts for some inspiration, or rewatch some episodes of Mythbusters (or check out the archive here). You will be working in groups of 2-3 for this project, no individual projects allowed without very special permission!
