STATS 32: Introduction to R for Undergraduates
This short course runs for weeks two through five of the quarter. It is recommended for undergraduate students who want to use R in the linguistics, humanities, social sciences or biological sciences and for students who want to learn the basics of R programming. The goal of the short course is to familiarize students with R's tools for scientific computing. Lectures will be interactive with a focus on learning by example, and assignments will be applicationdriven. No prior programming experience is needed. Topics covered include basic data structures, File I/O, graphs, control structures, etc, and some useful packages in R. Prerequisite: undergraduate student. Priority given to nonengineering students. Laptops necessary for use in class.

STATS 101: Data Science 101
http://web.stanford.edu/class/stats101/ . This course will provide a handson introduction to statistics and data science. Students will engage with the fundamental ideas in inferential and computational thinking. Each week, we will explore a core topic comprising three lectures and two labs (a module), in which students will manipulate realworld data and learn about statistical and computational tools. Students will engage in statistical computing and visualization with current data analytic software (Jupyter, R). The objectives of this course are to have students (1) be able to connect data to underlying phenomena and to think critically about conclusions drawn from data analysis, and (2) be knowledgeable about programming abstractions so that they can later design their own computational inferential procedures. No programming or statistical background is assumed. Freshmen and sophomores interested in data science, computing and statistics are encouraged to attend. Open to graduates as well.
