2/15/19, 2(04 PM project1 Page 1 of 36 World Progress In this project, you'll explore data from Gapminder.org () , a website dedicated to providing a fact-based view of the world and how it has changed. That site includes several data visualizations and presentations, but also publishes the raw data that we will use in this project to recreate and extend some of their most famous visualizations. The Gapminder website collects data from many sources and compiles them into tables that describe many countries around the world. All of the data they aggregate are published in the Systema Globalis () . Their goal is "to compile all public statistics; Social, Economic and Environmental; into a comparable total dataset." All data sets in this project are copied directly from the Systema Globalis without any changes. This project is dedicated to Hans Rosling () (1948-2017), who championed the use of data to understand and prioritize global development challenges. Logistics Deadline. This project is due at 11:59pm on Friday 3/1. Projects will be accepted up to 2 days (48 hours) late; a project submitted less than 24 hours after the deadline will receive 2/3 credit, a project submitted between 24 and 48 hours after the deadline will receive 1/3 credit, and a project submitted 48 hours or more after the deadline will receive no credit. It's much better to be early than late, so start working now. Checkpoint. For full credit, you must also complete the first 8 questions and submit them by 11:59pm on Friday 2/22. You will have some lab time to work on these questions, but we recommend that you start the project before lab and leave time to finish the checkpoint afterward. Partners. You may work with one other partner; your partner must be from your assigned lab section. Only one of you is required to submit the project. On okpy.org () , the person who submits should also designate their partner so that both of you receive credit. Rules. Don't share your code with anybody but your partner. You are welcome to discuss questions with other students, but don't share the answers. The experience of solving the problems in this project will prepare you for exams (and life). If someone asks you for the answer, resist! Instead, you can demonstrate how you would solve a similar problem. Support. You are not alone! Come to o ce hours, post on Piazza, and talk to your classmates. If you want to ask about the details of your solution to a problem, make a private Piazza post and the sta ff will respond. If you're ever feeling overwhelmed or don't know how to make progress, email your TA or tutor for help. You
