Course Description

R is a programming language that is an essential skill for statistical computing and graphics. It is the tool of choice for data science professionals in every industry and field, not only to create reproducible high-quality analyses, but to take advantage of R's great graphic and charting capabilities. In this 11-video Skillsoft Aspire course, you will explore the fundamental data structures used in R, including working with vectors, lists, matrices, factors, and data frames. The key concepts in this course include: creating vectors in R and manipulating and performing operations on vectors in R; how to sort vectors in R; and how to use lists in R and explore example code line by line executing each line using the run current line command along the way. You will also examine creating matrices and performing matrix operations in R; creating factors and data frames in R; performing data frame operations in R; and how to create and use a data frame.
