My name is Ian Maddaus. I am a technical writer and a member of the Society for Technical Communication with an interest in R programming, data analysis, and GIS. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Science and Natural History Filmmaking from Montana State University, but since I graduated I’ve found that I like technical writing, GIS, and R more than filmmaking. Now I spend my time writing documents about complicated things.
I also volunteer as a grant writer for the Orang Utan Republik Foundation. OURF supports conservation, outreach, and environmental education projects in North Sumatra, Indonesia to save wild Sumatran orangutans and their habitat. Orangutans are threatened by the expansion of palm oil plantations, logging, slash-and-burn agriculture, and the illegal pet trade; as a result orangutans are critically endangered.
OURF accepts donations here.
This demonstrates what the Central Limit Theorem is, why it is significant, and what conclusions you can draw from sampled data.
