Upcoming Assignment

Please complete the preliminary survey.


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.


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.


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)!
