# 1.2 — Meet R — Class Content

# Upcoming Assignment

Please complete the preliminary survey.

## Overview

Today we begin the long slog to your mastery of `R`

. We begin with the basics - how R works, how to use it, the different data types, and how to create and manipulate objects.

## Readings

- Ch.1 in Wickham & Grolemund, http://r4ds.had.co.nz/introduction.html

Now that we start working with R, you should consider this book to be your *primary* reference for R-related questions. We will broadly cover the first few chapters in order over the next 2-3 class periods.

## R Practice

Today we will be working on practice problems. Answers will be posted later on that page.

## Slides

Below, you can find the slides in two formats. Clicking the image will bring you to the html version of the slides in a new tab. The lower button will allow you to download a PDF version of the slides.

I suggest printing the slides beforehand and using them to take additional notes in class (*not everything* is in the slides)!
