Over the semester, you will study a topic of mathematical statistics, presenting a written report. The written report should be
pages long, doublespaced,
properly referenced. You may type your report in a word processor (such as Microsoft Word), use a mathematical
typesetting program such as LaTeX, or the R Markdown language, which is a pretty easytolearn
language for combining
mathematical notation and R code/output that is built into R Studio that creates .html or .pdf or Word documents that can be
I use R Markdown frequently in preparing notes and handouts for classes. I have posted an example of a report (my topic
was the ShapiroWilk
test of goodnessoffit
to the normal distrbution) in .html format. I have also posted the original .Rmd
format. If you do not wish to learn R Markdown, feel free to use Word or LaTeX .
I have compiled a list of possible topics. These topics are covered in either your textbook or in similar textbooks which I
have. Some topics will lend themselves to using R, which you can incorporate into your report. Other topics will not involve
R or any computer analysis.
If you wish to study a topic that is not listed, talk to me. I will be happy to consider other topics if they are appropriate. If you
have a double major or a minor and would like your project to be related to both mathematical statistics and that second
field, that is great and I will help you find an appropriate topic to combine both areas.
