An Introduction to ‘R’: free software for statistical analysis
This course aims to introduce R as a tool for statistics and graphics, with the main aim being to become comfortable with the R environment. It will focus on entering and manipulating data in R and producing simple graphs. A few functions for basic statistics will be briefly introduced, but statistical functions will not be covered in detail.
At the end of the course, you are welcome to bring in your own data and problems for an ‘advisory’ session on analysis. No experience with 'R' or any other statistical software is required. Knowledge of a basic course in statistics would be beneficial, but not necessary.
