Please complete before the next class.

Make sure that you’ve completed all previous HW first.


Here’s my outline for the class and code to load the data. See the finished product link below.

# load packages
library(tidyverse) # load tidyverse package, which has lots of useful functions.

# load data
nominate_df <- read_csv("")
# note: for the sake of simplicity we're linking to the file directly on the course site.
# note: this only works for csv files
# feel free to download it, add it to the RStudio Cloud project, and use read_csv("nominate.csv").

glimpse(nominate_df) # use glimpse() to see what your data frame looks like.

# histograms
# ----

# filtering
# ----

# faceting
# ----

# density plots
# ----

# color, fill, and alpha
# ----

# labels
# ----

# themes
# ----

Here’s the cloud project with the finished code histograms.R we wrote in class. The servers have been a little fragile in the past if lots of people tried to access this at once, so you might try later if you run into an error of some sort.


See the previous HW if you haven’t got RStudio working on your computer yet.

Read and review your notes and my notes over “Histograms in R” (currently chapter 3). Answer the review questions thoughout the document. I highlighted the exercises in orange to make them easy to spot.

You can find a video tutorial on Histograms in R here. It duplicates what we did in class and mostly duplicates the notes.

As before, I give the following advice about the R assignments:

b <- c("Male", "Female)  # missing the second " after "Female"
exp(23  # forgot to close a parentheses
log(10 base = 2)  # missing comma between arguments

a <- c(1, 2, 3)
mean(A)  # R is case-sensitive--there's an object "a", but no object "A" 
mena(a)  # misspelled function name
Mean(a)  # R is case-senstive
