Introduction to Data Analysis and Visualization in R

The open-source software package R is a robust, powerful, and versatile data analysis and visualization tool. The overarching goal of this class is to provide students from different disciplines with some foundational knowledge of how to work in R so they feel comfortable using R in some of their future classes, research, and jobs. Specifically, this course will introduce students to R basics (e.g., data input/output, data frames, sorting, R packages), programming (loops, creating functions), data visualization (e.g., scatterplots, boxplots, 3-D plots), and how to run basic statistics in R (descriptive statistics, regression, ANOVA).
