While I strongly recommend that you take notes of what I say and write in lectures, I also make a typed version of my notes available here. These notes are updated continuously as term progresses, and new versions will be uploaded regularly.

I have split out all advice about using R into a separate document:

Before and during the module I asked the students (and sometimes the tutors) to fill in different questionnaires. Here are the results:

- before the module started: R skills
- after the week 2 tutorials: use of R in tutorials
