Data Stories

Calculus is a beautiful construct which allows us also to deal with data and especially with the models for these data. Here are some blog notes about Quantitative Reasoning with Data (QRD) part of the course. [Update: October 4, 2020. Some of the rather messy blog notes have now been moved elsewhere. There will be a lot to be written about in the future from this time: the gathering of data, the interpretation of data and how to draw conclusions from data. We pure mathematicians are maybe not expert enough to do so. There had been a course MIT 18 .S190 for example at MIT dealing with mathematical and computational modeling in the spring 2000 semester. There is also a GenEd course 1170 now in the fall dealing with more global aspects.]
