Wed, Nov 20, 2013 – Running evolutionary models in replicate, calculating and plotting 95% confidence intervals

We will have class next week, Nov. 27th

For those who missed class last week, we will be having class next week, Nov. 27th.

Next week will be a hands-on workshop covering some useful Python scientific computing libraries. Be sure to bring your laptop.

Homework 7 solutions

We will go over the solution to the evolutionary digital modeling homework.

This homework was tough, so we will dedicate plenty of class time to walk through it. Come to class with specific questions about the issues you ran in to.

Here is the notebook that we covered in class showing you how to plot the average and SEM for multiple files:

Homework 8 - Final project

We will be expanding the model from the evolutionary digital modeling homework for a final project. This project will cover the next two weeks. You may work on this project in groups of up to 4 people, but you can do a solo project if you prefer.

For the first week, you will decide as a group on an interesting (and feasible^) extension of the model and begin implementing it and gathering data from the model. For the second week, you will analyze the data, plot the data, and write up a 2-page report.
