STA 210 - Spring 2022
Introduction to the lab assignment (~ 5 - 10 minutes)
Work on the lab assignment (individual at first, but in teams for the rest of the semester)
Lab instructions posted on the course website.
Start each lab by finding your assignment repo in the course GitHub organization
You do not have to finish the lab in class, they will always be due the following Friday at 5:00 pm. One work strategy is to get through portions that you think will be most challenging (which initially might be the coding component) during lab when a TA can help you on the spot and leave the narrative writing until later.
When working in teams (later in the semester) do not pressure each other to finish early; use the time wisely to really learn the material and produce a quality report.
Go to the GitHub course organization: https://github.com/sta210-s22
You should see a repo with the prefix
lab-1- followed by your GitHub username
If you do not have this repo, please let your TAs know!
Follow along as your TA demonstrates the following:
Configure Git using SSH
Clone RStudio repo and start new project
Render document and produce PDF
Update name in YAML
Render, commit, push changes to GitHub
See updates in your GitHub repo
Make sure all your final changes have been pushed to your GitHub repo
Submit the PDF of your responses to Gradescope
You can access Gradescope through Sakai or the course website
Login using your Duke NetID credentials
Please “raise your hand” if you need help as you work on the lab
