Readers (with a Williams ID) interested in my Winter Study class can check out the Glow page for the class here. (Glow is the in-process replacement for Blackboard and is based on Moodle. It provide a lot of interesting features, but there will be lots of initial problems as Williams, the students and I get used to it.)

Here (pdf) is the latest version of the syllabus. It is too late (obviously) for me to make major changes for this year, but I plan on teaching a class like this, either at Williams or elsewhere, for years to come, so feedback is always appreciated. Also, if anyone has access to interesting Williams-related data sets and would be willing to let my students use that data for their projects, please let me know.
