This course is an introduction to statistical software R. The course will introduce the student to the basics of using R for statistical programming, computation, graphics, and basic data modelling.

- Use R for statistical programming, computation, graphics, and statistical modelling
- Write functions in and use R in an efficient way
- Perform basic statistical analysis and basic statistical models
