Read Andrew Gelman and Cosma Shalizi's \emph{Philosophy and the Practice of Bayesian Statistics}, a link is available on the course webpage. The paper is a little long, so the following questions are designed to focus your reading.
\begin{questions}
% Basic question
\addpoints
% Question with parts
%\newpage
\question[4] What are the schools of thought for classical and Bayesian statistics that the authors disagree with?
\vfill
\vfill
\question[2] Explain what $P(\theta|y)$ means.
\vfill
\question[4] Describe the data-analysis cycle from a Bayesian perspective.
\vfill
\vfill
\newpage
\question[4] Summarize Gelman's argument for model checking in a Bayesian framework.
\vfill
\question[2] What about this article still has you confused?
\vfill
\question[4] So what do we as statistical practioners take from this article?
\vfill
% If you want the total number of points for a question displayed at the top,
% as well as the number of points for each part, then you must turn off the point-counter
% or they will be double counted.
\end{questions}
