Required course

LCT8600 Introduction to R Programming

Learn R programming, and become skilled in this open source language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. R programs are used by statisticians and data miners to facilitate data analysis and visualization and help build predictive models. In this class, you will learn how to define a predictive modeling problem to study; learn R commands for data analysis, program a real-time predictive tool. and apply your approach to different predictive problems as part of class projects. (Class schedule: Summer 2020)
