There are no required texts for this unit, however students might be interested in the following optional text:
In addition, students may also be interested in these free online books to assist in learning the programming language R, and Integrated Development Environment (IDE) RStudio, which will be used throughout the unit:
- R for Data Science, by Garrett Grolemund and Hadley Wickham https://r4ds.had.co.nz
- Advanced R, by Hadley Wickham https://adv-r.hadley.nz
- Introduction to Data Science, by Rafael A. Irizarry https://rafalab.github.io/dsbook/
- R Programming for Data Science, by Roger Peng https://bookdown.org/rdpeng/rprogdatascience
- Exploratory Data Analysis, by Roger Peng https://bookdown.org/rdpeng/exdata
- What they Forgot to Teach you About R, by Jennifer Bryan https://whattheyforgot.org
- Hands on Programming with R, Garrett Grolemund https://rstudio-education.github.io/hopr/
Required readings and other complementary learning resources will be available on the unit Canvas site.
This is a 100% online unit and therefore there are no face-to-face requirements. However, it is expected that students will engage with the online learning material, and participate in discussion forums.
It is also strongly encouraged that students attend the optional drop-in sessions. These will be conducted on Microsoft Teams and provide an opportunity for students to ask questions and discuss the unit content and assessment items. It is also a good opportunity for students to meet others enrolled in the unit.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will have UC entry level IT skills, allowing them to access the unit Canvas site. It is assumed that students have a reasonable understanding of Microsoft Office software (or equivalent). In addition, this unit will use the open source data analysis software 'RStudio'. A basic understanding of data software (e.g. Microsoft Excel) is assumed, however it is not assumed students have used RStudio before. Therefore, tutorials in R programming will be provided throughout the semester.
Work placement, internships or practicums
