Anth 5485: Graphical Data Analysis
Data analysis begins with the search for pattern. Having found
pattern, we then ask whether it is real or just an artifact of
sampling. Most stat courses concentrate on the second problem but
ignore the search for pattern. This course reverses that usual
emphasis. Students will learn to manipulate data using the R
statistical package and to search for pattern using the graphical
methods that come with R.
