Academic ethics policy: you have to do your homeworks by yourself. In case of academic cheating (e.g. if you copy someone else's work, etc.), your work will receive grade 0 and the program supervisor will be notified. If you feel that you are stuck with the homeowork, ask for instructor's advices and hints.

Late penalties: in case of late submission, your grade will be multiplied by exp(-t / 86400), where t is the number of seconds since the due date. For example, if you delay the submission by one day, your grade will be multiplied by exp(-1)=0.3678794412.

Extensions: you can ask for up to two extensions of homework due dates during the course. Each extension is one week. Extensions due to valid excuses (i.e. illness) do not count.

During this course we will use R as a programming language and RStudio as a GUI.

How to install R and RStudio?

1. Download R (you can choose another mirror here if you wish) and install it on your computer. Make sure you did it before installing RStudio.

2. Download RStudio (you need RStudio Desktop Open Source License) and install it on your computer. It is recommended to create a shortcut for RStudio during installation.

It is possible avoid installing anything on your PC, using (an online version of RStudio).

For successful submission of assignments you should be able to create and save R code files (.R) and RMarkdown files (.Rmd).

Final project

Online course

We will use some parts of DataCamp online course Introduction to R. (Will be made available free for the students.)
