Exploring the IDS Dashboard provides a visual approach to data analysis.
Today students will continue their data exploration of the Trash campaign via the IDS public dashboard.
As a team, students should select statistical questions and provide appropriate plots and summaries from the dashboard to answer those questions.
Leave 10-15 minutes at the end of class to share out some of the findings from each student team.
One team of students will give a brief talk to discuss what they think the 3 most important topics of the day were.
Students will brainstorm possible RStudio commands to complement their initial analyses from the dashboard. It is up to the teacher to ask for a minimum number of commands from each student.
