Brief course description
This is a “hands-on” business analytics, or data analytics course teaching how to use the popular, no-cost R software to perform dozens of data mining tasks using real data and data mining cases. It teaches critical data analysis, data mining, and predictive analytics skills, including data exploration, data visualization, and data mining skills using one of the most popular business analytics software suites used in industry and government today. The course is structured as a series of dozens of demonstrations of how to perform classification and predictive data mining tasks, including building classification trees, building and training decision trees, using random forests, linear modeling, regression, generalized linear modeling, logistic regression, and many different cluster analysis techniques. The course also trains and instructs on “best practices” for using R software, teaching and demonstrating how to install R software and RStudio, the characteristics of the basic data types and structures in R, as well as how to input data into an R session from the keyboard, from user prompts, or by importing files stored on a computer’s hard drive. All software, slides, data, and R scripts that are performed in the dozens of case-based demonstration video lessons are included in the course materials so students can “take them home” and apply them to their own unique data analysis and mining cases. There are also “hands-on” exercises to perform in each course section to reinforce the learning process. The target audience for the course includes undergraduate and graduate students seeking to acquire employable data analytics skills, as well as practicing predictive analytics professionals seeking to expand their repertoire of data analysis and data mining knowledge and capabilities.
