**Upload a knitted .html file with answers to the following questions. There is a separate homework assignment on Blackboard where you can upload your responses.**

For this project, you will analyze a real dataset (either your own, or one drawn from published data) to address a specific research research question (or several related questions). If you are using a published dataset, you should propose a novel question to test with these data, rather than recreating an analysis from a prior study.

You should choose a question that is applicable to a technique common in your area of research interest….hopefully one that you aren’t too familiar with (we want you to learn something here!)

For the presentation, you will be walking the class through the process of analyzing your data (including an Rmarkdown document that includes all R code used to make all visuals and to perform all statistical analysis). Your presentation should take approximately 15 minutes.

## Research Question

- Explicitly state the question that you will be exploring in this project.

## Data

- What data do you need to test your hypothesis / answer your question?
- What would be the headers of a dataframe containing these data? What datatypes?
- Where will you be getting these data?

## Analysis

- Will you do any statistical transformations (e.g. log transform) to any of the variables?
- Which statistical tests (e.g. regression, ANCOVA, Discriminant Function Analysis) will you be using to test your hypothesis?

## Visualization

- What kind of graphical plots will you be making? Be specific (e.g. I will make a scatter plot of log body mass on the x-axis against log femur length on the y-axis. )
