Anything related to python, sql, java, biology, data science, or Spanish
BioI am a current master's student of computer science in data science at the University of Illinois. I graduated from BYU a year ago where I became a published author in the Journal of Proteome Research. Right now I am a data analyst and computer programmer for Collective Medical, a PointClickCare company. I love to travel, meet new people and play basketball. I have spent several years in Latin America (the Dominican Republic and Peru) which is where I learned Spanish and developed quite a taste for plantains and ceviche. I also love being outdoors, and like to go hiking, snowboarding, and camping whenever I can.
Finding the Optimal Study Method
There is no shortage of suggestions found from a variety of sources on the best way to study for an important test. Are flash cards the best way to memorize things? What about writing a song with lyrics based on the test subject? How about teaching a friend or family member? Using research design and computer science skills we can find the answer to which study method is best within a particular school/community. Some important questions to think about include: -What kind of test would we use to measure study effectiveness? Would it be memorization or analysis based, or both? -How would we set up the experiment and control our variables to best ensure that the results come only as a result of the students' method of study? -How would we represent our data and perform the necessary statistical tests in a programming environment?
