Applied R in the Classroom

Australian Economic Review, 2020, vol. 53, issue 1, 139-157

Abstract: R, with support from a number of add‐on packages, is an excellent teaching tool that can greatly enhance learning of exploratory data analysis (EDA) and linear regression. This article illustrates using R along with the packages tidyverse, GGally, esquisse and lindia to walk through an example of basic EDA and linear regression that might be used in an introductory class along with code examples for every step. Teaching with R can give learners control of their analysis, lower the intimidating coding barrier, and provide a platform on which to learn modeling and analysis.
