In this course it will teach the basics of statistical inference in order to understand and compute p-values and confidence intervals, all while analyzing data with R. We will use visualization techniques to explore new data sets and determine the most appropriate approach. We will also describe robust statistical techniques as alternatives when data do not fit assumptions required by the standard approaches.
