  • 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.
