Dynamic Data in the Statistics Classroom

The call for using {\em real} data in the classroom has long meant using datasets which are culled, cleaned, and wrangled prior to any student working with the observations. However, an important part of teaching statistics should include actually retrieving data. Nowadays, there are many different sources of data that are continually updated by the organization hosting the data website. The R tools to download such dynamic data have improved in such a way to make accessing the data possible even in an introductory statistics class. We provide four full analyses on dynamic data as well as an additional six sources of dynamic data that can be brought into the classroom.
