Dr. Paul Murrell will offer his Graphics in R course online at
statistics.com May 4 June 1. Participants can ask questions and exchange
comments with Dr. Murrell via a private discussion board throughout the period.
This course teaches you how to produce publication-quality statistical
plots of data using R (a freely available open-source statistical language
and environment). It will cover plots such as scatterplots, bar plots,
histograms, boxplots and Trellis plots. It will review the underlying
model used to produce plots in R so that you can extensively customize
these plots. Finally, the course will introduce the grid graphics system
and look at producing unique plots from the ground up using basic components.
Dr. Murrell, the author of R Graphics, (CRC Press 2005) has been a member
of the core development team for R since 1999, with a focus on the graphics
system in R. He is the Editor-in-Chief of R News, the newsletter of the
R project, and an Associate Editor for Computational Statistics. He is
also Chair of the American Statistical Associations Statistical Graphics
Section, and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Statistics at the
University of Auckland, New Zealand.
The course lasts four weeks and consists of a series of four weekly lessons
(directed readings and/or notes, plus exercises). Expect to spend about
10-15 hours per week; there are no set hours when you must be online.
