Course Description

Continue exploring the advantageous aspects of the programming language R in this 8-video Skillsoft Aspire course. An essential skill for statistical computing and graphics, R has become the tool of choice for data science professionals in every industry and field. Learn how to create reproducible high-quality analyses, while taking advantage of R's great graphic and charting capabilities. Learners will explore how to use R to create plots and charts of data. Key concepts covered in this course include creating a scatter plot by using the built-in R method; creating a line graph on a time series data set; and creating a bar chart with the built-in R function bar plot. You will learn how to create a box and whisker plot by using the built in mtcars data set; to create a histogram with the built-in R function hist, and the equivalent by using the ggplot2 library functions; and how to create a bubble plot with the ggplot2 library. Finally, learn how to use an appropriate plot to visualize data.
