Spreadsheets - Berkeley Advanced Media Institute Tutorial: Spreadsheets Introduction A spreadsheet is a software program you use to easily perform mathematical calculations on statistical data and, such as totaling long columns of numbers or determining percentages and averages. And if any of the raw numbers you put into your spreadsheet should change – if you obtain final figures to substitute for preliminary ones, for example – the spreadsheet will update all the calculations you’ve performed based on the new numbers.
R Programming for Data Science / Roger D. Peng Data science has taken the world by storm. Every field of study and area of business has been affected as people increasingly realize the value of the incredible quantities of data being generated. But to extract value from those data, one needs to be trained in the proper data science skills. The R programming language has become the de facto programming language for data science.
Why Ontologies? In short, an ontology is the specification of a conceptualization. What does that mean from the perspective of the information sciences? Wikipedia's definition: "formal naming and definition of the types, properties, and interrelationships of the entities that really or fundamentally exist for a particular domain of discourse." This basically means, like all models, that it is a representation of what actually exists in reality. A statistical or mathematical model attempts to represent some behavior in terms of a statistical or mathematical formula. The equation shown in the figure below is from the US Census Bureau and models the distribution of incomes in the United States for people making $100,000 per year or less:

Spreadsheet Basics (Completed) Create your own Interactive Fiction What is Interactive Fiction? Interactive Fiction (formerly referred to as Text Adventures) are a cross between reading a book and playing a game, where you control the main character. Rather than reading the story from start to finish, you interact with everything by typing commands at a prompt, discovering things as you go along. Well written games give you, the player, the impression that anything you type is understood by giving a sensible and meaningful response. Indeed, part of the fun of playing interactive fiction games is discovering responses to things you didn't expect to have been catered for.
Data Visualization: Basics Tutorial: Data Visualization: Basics Introduction Data visualizations, frequently referred to as information graphics, are a powerful tool that will inform and educate your readers. Often important data-heavy information can bog down a narrative or slow the pacing of a story. That data might be edited out to streamline a story or put into a table for readers to browse.
Resources These are some representative external resources. The list includes tools that complement Graphviz, such as graph generators, postprocessors and interactive viewers. It also includes higher level systems and web sites that rely on Graphviz as a visualization service. You can also find Graphviz-related projects in Google Code. Please send us suggestions for additions to this list with, if possible, a recommendation as to appropriate category for the resource.
