This is a non-credit and online course. The purpose of this class is to introduce students to the principles of programming using the R and RStudio software packages. R and RStudio are powerful and versatile data analysis packages that are freely available. While the class focus is on programming in R and RStudio, the programming skills taught are designed so that students can transfer their skills to other programming platforms like ADMB or C. This class replaces R Essentials for Natural Resource Professionals.
This non-credit, on-line course will introduce students to model fitting by maximum likelihood techniques, estimation of uncertainty in model estimates (e.g., likelihood profiling), and methods of inference using multiple models (e.g., AIC model averaging).
R Essentials for Natural Resource Professionals
This non-credit, on-line course introduces students to the R statistical software package and programming environment. R is an extremely powerful and versatile data analysis package that is freely available for download off the world-wide web. R rivals and, in some cases, surpasses commercial statistical software and graphing packages. This class is no longer available and has been replaced by R Fundamentals for Research.
