Session Description

This class is part of a series of classes that are designed to teach non-programmers to write modular code and to introduce best practices for using R for data analysis.

The Introduction to R series is divided into two one-hour classes. The first class is an introduction to R and RStudio. This second class is an introduction to R data types. These sessions are designed so that people can drop in/out based on their skill level. However, when we get to the second session, there will not be a review of topics from the first session.


  • Describe the major R data types.
  • Describe R data frames.
  • Perform basic operations on R data frames.
  • Describe vectors and define vector operations.
