Pushing Changes

Now that you’ve set up your GitHub repository for collaborating with your colleague and made some changes, you’d better get them some work so they can see what you’re doing.

  1. To look at the relationship between the length of each fish’s body and the size of its scale across the different lakes sampled in these data, create a scatterplot with length on the x-axis and scalelength on the y-axis, then color the points using lakeid.
  2. Commit this change.
  3. Once you’ve committed the change click the Push button in the upper right corner of the window and then click OK when git is done pushing.
  4. You should be able to see the changes you made on Github.
  5. Message your teacher to let them know you’ve finished this exercise. Include in a link to your Github repository.
