From now on there are available some cheat sheets for Calculus and Statistics. These cheat sheets contains a summary with the main formulas used in Calculus and Statistics.
In this post I offer some advice or tips that can help undergraduate students, especially during their first years, to be successful making the most of classes and learning to maximize their work.
The 1.3.0 version of the R package rkTeaching for learning Statistics is available to install. This version is updated with the 3.2.3 version of R and the 0.6.5 version of RKWard.
I’m glad to offer a basic manual of Excel, the famous Microsoft Office spreadsheet. This manual is intended mainly for students of Economics and Business Administration, and for that reason, most of the examples in this manual are applied to accounting and finance. However, the manual also serves for learning a basic management of Excel, no matter the field of application.
Father and environmental activist, I work as a teacher of Mathematics and Statistics at the Applied Maths and Statistics department of the CEU San Pablo University. I do my research in Data Science, including Biostatistics and Machine Learning. I master the programming languages R, Python and LaTeX.

Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is considered one of the main causes of blindness. Detection of POAG at early stages and classification into evolutionary stages is crucial to blindness prevention. Methods: 1001 patients were enrolled, of whom 766 were healthy subjects and 235 were ocular hypertensive or glaucomatous patients in different stages of the disease. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) was used to determine Bruch’s membrane opening-minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) and the thicknesses of peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) rings with diameters of 3.0, 4.1 and 4.7 mm centred on the optic nerve. The BMO-MRW rim and RNFL rings were divided into seven sectors (G-T-TS-TI-N-NS-NI). The k-means algorithm and linear discriminant analysis were used to classify patients into disease stages. Results: We defined four glaucoma stages and provided a new model for classifying eyes into these stages, with an overall accuracy greater than 92% (88% when including healthy eyes). An online application was also implemented to predict the probability of glaucoma stage for any given eye. Conclusions: We propose a new objective algorithm for classifying POAG into clinical-evolutionary stages using SD-OCT.
