Statistics with R Programming


After taking the course, students will be able to

 Use R for statistical programming, computation, graphics, and modeling,  Write functions and use R in an efficient way,

 Fit some basic types of statistical models

 Use R in their own research,

 Be able to expand their knowledge of R on their own.
