Learn Statistics with R


Why Learn Statistics with R?

This course is a great introduction to both fundamental statistics concepts and the R programming language. R is used by professionals in the Data Analysis and Data Science fields as part of their daily work.

Take-Away Skills

In this course, you will dive into the world of statistics using the popular language R. Starting with a handful of descriptive statistics like mean, median, mode, variance, and IQR, you will use R to better describe our datasets. You’ll then learn how to make hypotheses and test those hypotheses. By learning these skills in R, you will grow your ability to describe and analyze your data!
