Syllabus: Intro to Coding for Social Scientists
This is our core introductory scientfic computing syllabus. The materials here are designed to be suitable for learners with little to no prior programming experience.
Intro to Programming in R
Basic Data Cleaning & Plotting in R
Additional instructional materials
Many of these materials were originally prepared as presentations for Columbia Psychology R users, but are also designed to be stand-alone tutorials that you can read through and learn from remotely. These materials span a wider range of learner skill levels, and assume basic experience with scientific computing.
