Course Outline

Pre-Requisites

Students are expected to have a basic understanding of descriptive and univariate statistics.

Lessons

R is a free and open-source programming language that allows its users to access a wide range of statistical and graphical tools. Over the last decade, R has become one of the most widely used statistical software programs among researchers around the world due to its growing capabilities for statistical data analysis through user-created, free packages.

This course will introduce students to statistical and data science procedures widely used in social sciences, public health, and other similar areas. Four aspects of statistical reasoning will be emphasized: (1) data wrangling, (2) data visualization, (3) univariate statistical methods, and (4) computer applications using R (https://cran.r-project.org/). To control R, students will use RStudio (https://www.rstudio.com/), which is a free, user-friendly program with a console, syntax-highlighting editor that supports direct code execution, and a variety of robust tools for plotting. The topics of this course include the basic structure and functions of R, data management in R, and ways to describe, visualize, and analyze data in R.

I had a very bad experience with the instructor - he centered me out throughout the entire class - asked me continuously if I on pace or knew how to do the work. If I asked him a question he seemed anger made me feel little, stupid, he was very condescending. At one point he helped me and he said things like "this is a desktop" "do you know that?" others laughed. I almost left the course halfway through. I'm a much older person and First Nations and I'm shocked he treated me the way he did. It's like I was less of a person, discriminating, and etc.

My payments were taken care of by last minute training with the University of Alberta. The teacher was good, the content was good.
I already completed a survey at the end of the course so not sure why I have to complete another survey on line? LOL

I would have preferred using the manual given to follow, so I could add my notes to each area as we worked through the course. Unfortunately all my notes are in the beginning of the book as we, only looked it once, when a student asked what page we were on.
