Statistical Programming Methods

Welcome to the Fall 2021 semester of STAT 385, Statistical Programming Methods, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. STAT 385 is a undergraduate level statistical programming course that is appropriate for students pursuing an BS in Statistics as well as other students interested in data science. At the highest level, we hope to:

  • Introduce students without a strong technical background to core concepts in computing and programming.
  • Demonstrate tools to apply computing and programming concepts through the use of the R programming language and data science examples.

Almost all course information can be found on this website. We will use some additional external sites including:

Additional information about these resources can be found in the Syllabus! If this is your first time on this website, that should be the first thing you read. If you’re a student progressing through the course, you’ll find the information for each week in the links to the left or in the burger menu. The numbered links correspond to the weeks of the course.
