Welcome! I would like to get to you a bit. But first

- Download/Install R
- Download/Install R studio
- Download/Install R markdown
- Install R bookdown
- Install Tinytex

Not only can you type run R code, you can produce html and pdf files with math and R code together! Roughly speaking R studio is an easy way to use R, and R markdown is a language easily generates html files with R code and math symbols, allowing the use of basic Latex code; it is how I generates many of the html pages for our module.

Please send me an *html* file generated using R markdown with the following information. It might be helpful to use this R markdown file as a template (see below).
