What is "distrTeach" meant for?
The aim of
to provide illustrations based on package "distr"
to topics in
Stochastics and Statistics taught in secondary school.
Up to now, we have moved the corresponding illustrations
for the CLT and the LLN from package "distrEx"
to this package.
for versions of
prior to 1.8, a somewhat more detailed manual to this package in pdf-format
is available here;
from version 1.8 on, we have converted this manual into a common
vignette to packages distr
which is available in the mere documentation package distrDoc
. To use it you may type
require("distrDoc"); V<-vignette("distr"); print(V); edit(V)
