Basic R – Statistics for Graduate Students (UTSC)

October 9 @ 2:30 am 5:00 pm EDT

Speaker: Sohee Kang, Assistant Professor—Teaching Stream, Statistics/Computer and Mathematical Sciences

This workshop introduces participants to R programming, statistical analysis and visualization techniques. The focus is on introductory concepts, syntax and usage. Hands-on tutorials will be conducted throughout the session, giving everyone a chance to see R in action. This workshop is geared toward those with little or no prior experience with R. Participants will need to bring a laptop with the R software, which can be downloaded at https://cran.r-project.org/.   

A 30-minute break for pizza and coffee is included. Since the workshop is offered in the IC, we can provide a vegan alternative from La Prep, along with deluxe vegetarian and pepperoni options for pizza. Please indicate your dietary restriction/preference in the “Accommodations” box below.
