Young Research Library, West Classroom
R (programming language)

This class provides an introduction to R in a Carpentries pedagogical style with a focus on active learning and hands-on experience.  We will focus on teaching R with a data analytic focus using the Tidyverse, a set of interconnected R tools intended to make R easier to use for data analysis. This is an introduction to R designed for participants with no programming experience. We start with some basic information about R syntax, the RStudio interface, and move through how to import CSV files, the structure of data frames, how to calculate summary statistics from a data frame, and a brief introduction to plotting.
