This course provides an introduction to probability and statistical methods.

Part of the objective of this course is to introduce you to data analysis with a help of R. However, you can choose any other statistical software or programming language instead -- like Python, Matlab, or Scala -- as long as you are able to follow the R examples given in class, and convert them to the language of your choice. This course does not assume prior programing knowledge, and you will get familiar with R enough to solve homework problems. Please check our software page on a regular basis for tips.
