## About this CourseThe goal of this course is to introduce you to a variety of programs and technologies that are useful for organizing, manipulating and visualizing data. This includes the R statistical computing language, the SQL language for working with databases, XML, the Document Object Model and Common Gateway Interface (CGI) used by webservers and browsers. Rather than concentrate on formulas and how they are computed, we'll use existing software to explore a variety of statistical problems concerning text and/or numbers, both numerically and graphically. Students are encouraged to download and install some of the software that we'll be using to their own computers. There are no prerequisites for the course, but students are expected to spend time thinking about the problems that are presented in the course, and to explore the software that we'll be using to solve those problems. ## GradingGrading will be based on 6 homework assignments (10% each), a midterm exam (20%) , and a final exam (20%).## Computers for Remote AccessIf you are accessing the SCF remotely, use a computer name of the form scf-ugNN.berkeley.edu, where the NN stands for a number from 01 to 27, for example scf-ug03.berkeley.edu . Once you are logged in, the commandstathosts publicwill show you the names of additional computers that you can access remotely. (You may need to add ".berkeley.edu" to the end of the computer name.) |
