A Student’s Guide to R is one of a series of books designed to help statistics students and educators master integrating modern computation in their courses. We refer to our approach as computational statistics because the availability of computation is shaping how statistics is done, taught, and understood. Computational statistics is a key component of data science, using data to answer questions and communicate results.
These materials have been shared with hundreds of statistics educators through workshops run under the auspices of Project Mosaic, CAUSE, the Mathematical Association of America, the American Statistical Association, the W.M. Keck Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the US National
