Session Description

The goal of this series of classes is to teach non-programmers to write modular code and to introduce best practices for using R for data analysis. The Introduction to R series is divided into two one-hour classes. This first class is an introduction to R and RStudio. The second class is an introduction to R data types. These sessions are designed so that people can drop in/out based on their skill level. However, when we get to the second session, there will not be a review of topics from the first session.

Session Objectives

  1. Learn about the data used in the classes
  2. Describe the purpose and use of each pane in the RStudio IDE
  3. Locate buttons and options in the RStudio IDE
  4. Manage a workspace in an interactive R session
  5. Manage packages
  6. Use mathematical and comparison operators
  7. Define and assign data to a variable
