How to weigh a dog with a ruler? (looking for translators)


We are working on a series of comic books that introduce statistical thinking and could be used as activity booklets in primary schools. Stories are built around adventures of siblings: Beta (skilled mathematician) and Bit (data hacker).

What is the connection between these comic books and R? All plots are created with ggplot2.

The first story (How to weigh a dog with a ruler?) is translated to English, Polish and Czech. If you would like to help us to translate this story to your native language, just write to me (przemyslaw.biecek at gmail) or create an issue on GitHub. It’s just 8 pages long, translations are available on Creative Commons BY-ND licence.

The main point of the first story is to find the relation between Height and Weight of different animals and then assess the weight of dinosaur T-Rex based only on the length of its skeleton. A method called Regression by Eye.
