The R Student Companion, 9781439875407 (1439875405), Routledge, 2012

R is the amazing, free, open-access software package for scientific graphs and calculations used by scientists worldwide. The R Student Companion is a student-oriented manual describing how to use R in high school and college science and mathematics courses. Written for beginners in scientific computation, the book assumes the reader has just some high school algebra and has no computer programming background.

The author presents applications drawn from all sciences and social sciences and includes the most often used features of R in an appendix. In addition, each chapter provides a set of computational challenges: exercises in R calculations that are designed to be performed alone or in groups.

Several of the chapters explore algebra concepts that are highly useful in scientific applications, such as quadratic equations, systems of linear equations, trigonometric functions, and exponential functions. Each chapter provides an instructional review of the algebra concept, followed by a hands-on guide to performing calculations and graphing in R.

R is intuitive, even fun. Fantastic, publication-quality graphs of data, equations, or both can be produced with little effort. By integrating mathematical computation and scientific illustration early in a student’s development, R use can enhance one's understanding of even the most difficult scientific concepts. While R has gained a strong reputation as a package for statistical analysis, The R Student Companion approaches R more completely as a comprehensive tool for scientific computing and graphing.

Data Structures and Algorithms Using Python and C++
Data Structures and Algorithms Using Python and C++
THIS BOOK is intended for use in a traditional college-level data structures course (commonly known as CS2). This book assumes that students have learned the basic syntax of Python and been exposed to the use of existing classes. Most traditional CS1 courses that use Python will have covered all the necessary topics, and some may have covered a...
Data Mining and Statistics for Decision Making
Data Mining and Statistics for Decision Making
Data mining is the process of automatically searching large volumes of data for models and patterns using computational techniques from statistics, machine learning and information theory; it is the ideal tool for such an extraction of knowledge. Data mining is usually associated with a business or an organization's need to identify...
Programming Fundamentals: A Modular Structured Approach Using C++
Programming Fundamentals: A Modular Structured Approach Using C++
The approach of this text is to take learners through a progression of materials in order to develop skills of modular, structured programming. The text was written, for the most part, without consideration of a specific programming language. However, in many cases the C++ language is discussed as part of the explanation of the concept. Often...
