Course Details

In this introductory data analysis course, we will use matrix algebra to represent the linear models that commonly used to model differences between experimental units. We perform statistical inference on these differences. Throughout the course, we will use the R programming language.

What you will learn?

  • Matrix algebra notation
  • Matrix algebra operations
  • Application of matrix algebra to data analysis
  • Linear models
  • Brief introduction to the QR decomposition
