Workshop II: Introduction to data science in R and documenting in RMarkdown

This workshop will introduce you to R, a common statistical programming language used across many courses at McGill as well as RMarkdown (typesetting language useful for producing documents that contain mathematical content and code). These are very useful and powerful tools but they have somewhat of a steep learning curve. So, the goal of this part of the workshop is to get you up a good part of that learning curve.

      Day 1: Introduction to the basics of R and the graphical user interface RStudio
      Day 2: Working with data (cleaning, pre-processing, dealing with missing values)
      Day 3: Visualizing data and producing graphs
      Day 4: Statistical prequel and more tips and tricks on working with R
      Day 5: Typesetting using RMarkdown and RStudio Add-Ins

More detailed information will be sent to participants in early August.

Date: from Monday, August 21st to Friday, August 25th.
Time: from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. Bring your own mug! Coffee will be provided.
LocationArts Building classroom 150, on the Downtown Campus.
Instructor: Dr. Tim Elrick, Director of the Geographic Information Centre at McGill, with support from TAs.
