This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to statistical computing using RStudio. This course will have two components. In the first part of the course, students will learn data manipulations, data structures, matrix manipulation, database operation, and functions. In the second part of the course, students will learn statistical computing topics including simulation studies and Monte Carlo methods, numerical optimization, Bootstrap resampling methods, and visualization. Students will be introduced to some packages and technologies that are useful for statistical computing. Through producing numerical summaries and creating customized graphs, students will be able to discuss the results obtained from their analyses and to generate dynamic and reproducible documents. Prerequisites: Math 141 (or ECON 350/BIO 375/PSY 214) and Math 151 (or MATH 135-136).
