Reading 1


Read the following chapters in R for Data Science before class on September 11, 2017:

  • All of Chapters 1, 26 (this one’s short), 27
  • In chapter 29, sections 29.1 through 29.5
  • Skim Chapters 6 and 8

These chapters are primarily about how to use the application RStudio and the document format RMarkdown, so you can use them as reference as you continue to become more familiar with these concepts.
