Course Description

This course is an introduction to R, analyzing and exploring data with R, and using R with a database. It focuses on statistics for model building and evaluation. Topics cover experimental research, correlation analysis, regression, confidence intervals, and group comparisons, and parametric and non-parametric models.

What Will You Learn?

This course provides data analytics technical skills for conducting quantitative analyses on data and big data.

Learn how to:

  • Utilize real datasets with graphs and numerical measures.
  • Conduct a uni-variate and bi-variate analyses on datasets in R.
  • Flag potential outliers for further investigation.
  • Illustrate graphically the probability distribution of variables.
  • Differentiate between discrete and continuous probability distributions.
  • Calculate binomial probabilities using normal approximations.
  • Investigate whether a sample size is large enough to apply the central limit theorem.
  • Apply testing and estimation techniques for simple linear regression analyses in R.
