4. Topic #6 – graphing‏ • Basic graphing options • 2. Special graphs • a. Histograms • b. Density functions • Used to show the distribution of empirical estimates • c. Cumulative distribution functions • Used to the percent that exceeds a given value hist(...)‏ plot(density(Vector))‏ plot(ecdf(Vector))‏

5. Topic #6 – graphing‏ • Basic graphing options • 3. Graphing layout • Step #1 – Split graphing screen • Include matrix declaring number of rows and columns • Step #2 – Specify frame to use • Tells which panel to use next • Step #3 – When done, close all screens • Tells R not to use split.screen anymore split.screen(c(2,2))‏ screen(1)‏ close.screen(all=TRUE)
