Shiny Apps for STAT 2, 20, 21, 131A

This is a collcetion of Shiny apps for introductory statistics courses based on the classic textbook Statistics by David Freedman, Robert Pisani, and Roger Purves (2007). Fourth Edition. Norton & Company.

I originally developed these apps for the course Stat 2, and refined them for Stat 20 / Stat 131A, at UC Berkeley. The main motivation behind the apps is to have teaching materials (in the form of interactive graphics) that I can use for living demos during lecture.

The apps are not specifically intended for Stat 2, 20 or 131A. They can be used for any of the introductory Statistics courses at UC Berkeley: STAT 2, STAT 20, STAT 21, STAT W21, STAT 131A, etc. And pretty much in any statistics introductory course in general.

Running the apps

The required software is R and RStudio (preferably a recent version).

Both R and RStudio are free, and are available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Assuming that you have both R and RStudio, the other thing you need is the R package "shiny". In case of doubt, run:

install.packages("shiny")

The easiest way to run an app is with the runGitHub() function from the "shiny" package. For instance, to run the app contained in the regression-galton folder, run the following code in R:

library(shiny)

# Run an app from a subdirectory in the repo
runGitHub("shiny-introstats", "gastonstat", subdir = "regression-galton")

Another way to run the apps is by cloning the git repository, then use runApp():

# First clone the repository with git. If you have cloned it into
# ~/regression-galton, first go to that directory, then use runApp().
setwd("~/regression-galton")
runApp()
