gamclass: Functions and Data for a Course on Modern Regression and Classification

Functions and data are provided that support a course that emphasizes statistical issues of inference and generalizability. The functions are designed to make it straightforward to illustrate the use of cross-validation, the training/test approach, simulation, and model-based estimates of accuracy. Methods considered are Generalized Additive Modeling, Linear and Quadratic Discriminant Analysis, Tree-based methods, and Random Forests.
