Workshop Lectures on Statistics with R / Fri 1-4pm and 4.30-7pm, Sat 9.15am-12am

These workshop lectures are designed to introduce participants to one of the most vibrant, free of charge statistical computing environments ― R. In this course you will learn how to use R for effective data analysis. We will cover a selected range of both basic topics (e.g., reading data into R, data structures (i.e., data frames, lists, matrices), data manipulation, statistical graphics) to more advanced topics (e.g., writing functions, control statements, loops, reshaping data, string manipulations, and statistical models in R).

This course is also helpful as a primer for other summer program courses that will use R, such as the courses on Computational Statistics, Data Mining, or Advanced Regression Modeling, among other courses. No prerequisites are required for this course.
