The course outline
Hints/draft R code for implementing this for a regression example from D. Pena
The assignment being to provide a legend that explains all the lines and symbols in this plot
With a bonus assignment being to provide better R code and or techniques.
And a possible graduate student assignment to investigate what percentage of examples in graduate stats texts (e.g. Cox & Hinkley) could be displayed this way (reducing the number of parameters to least number possible).
p.s. might have been a better post for Friday the 13th
p.s.2 background material from my thesis (passed in 2007)
