This is a project-based seminar course in which student’s learn about the practical aspects of working with real data using modern approaches and software packages such as R and Python. Each student is expect to select a dataset of their choice and to pose an interesting investigative question to be examined using this dataset. Each week the instructor discusses a basic tool or method of modern data analysis and the students investigate implementing and using these methods on test datasets, and eventually on their selected dataset (if appropriate). In this way, as the course proceeds students work towards a thorough analysis of the question they have selected to investigate for their dataset.
