Why Is This Here?

This is a placeholder for an introductory statistical computing course that I developed and taught at UF. I am retired now, but a student asked that I make the syllabus permanently available on the web as an HTML file (all the course materials are in UF’s elearning platform (Canvas), but eventually this will no longer be visible to the students).

Course Description

An introduction to statistical computing and programming with data. Topics include basic programming in R; data types and data structures in R; importing and cleaning data; specifying statistical models in R; statistical graphics; statistical simulation using pseudo-random numbers; reproducible research and the documentation of statisical analyses.
