Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Combination with “Introduction to coding in R (UE)” is strongly encouraged.

The aim of this lecture to provide a practical introduction to the statistical software R.

You will need no prior knowledge in R, an introduction to all basic terms and operations will be provided. However, participating students should have a basic understanding of statistics - we will focus on how to implement things and we will not cover mathematical background information.

Specific targets of the course are (i) data management, (ii) data summary and transformations (e.g. log-response ratios, combinations of SDs), (iii) data visualization and (iv) most common statistical operations (focus on t-tests, ANOVA and regressions).

At the end of this course, you should be comfortable working with R, putting you in a good position to process and analyze data collected for degree projects.
