Online short course: Modeling in R

Dr. Phillip Good will offer the short course "Modeling in R" online at statistics.com April 8-29, 2005.

This 3-week course will show you how to use R to create models for use in classification and prediction. You will be introduced to advanced graphing methods as needed. Modeling techniques include OLS, LAD, and EIV regression, quantile regression, and decision trees.

Dr. Phillip Good is the author of Introduction to Statistics via Resampling Methods and R (Wiley, 2005), Common Errors in Statistics (and How to Avoid Them) (Wiley, 2003 with James Hardin), plus a number of other books in statistics. He has given tutorials at the Joint Statistical Meetings (U.S.) and Deming Conference, lectured in Belgium, France, Holland, Ireland, and Spain, and was a traveling lecturer for the American Statistical Association.

The course lasts three weeks and consists of a series of three lessons
(assigned readings and/or notes, plus exercises). Direct interaction (Q&A)
with the instructor throughout the three week period takes place via a private discussion board. Expect to spend about 10 hours per week
(participants earn 1.5 CEU's); there are no set hours when you must be online.
