Recent Blogging on Statistical Concepts

stats r

This summer semester (starting in April here in Germany), I took a teaching assistant position for a lecture on cognitive modeling in an interdisciplinary master’s degree in cognitive science. Hence, my blogging activity has been shifting towards the creation of a couple of tutorials on various statistical concepts, including Monte Carlo methods, bootstrapping, and maximum likelihood estimation.

Thanks to the R package {bookdown}, I was able to incorporate plots and simulations in R right into my tutorials, which made the experience even more enjoyable.

Given the varying familiarity with statistics and programming across students, I aimed at providing intuitions for the concepts the lecture discusses. Another highlight for me was a chapter on ways of improving one’s mathematical reasoning. The challenge of verbalizing my conceptual understanding of these topics was indeed rewarding and fun.

I am inviting you to take a look at our public course page through the link below.
