Maths - 16 June 2021

Teachers, advisers and colleagues from schools and colleges across the UK and around the world, are invited to join us virtually for our Annual Teachers' and Advisers' CPD week running from 14 - 18 June 2021.

This event will be delivered by our Maths department who will explore:

  • What data science is and an introduction to R.
  • How and why tools like R are often used in other disciplines such as Social Sciences and Biological Sciences.
  • How R can be used to calculate simple descriptive statistics and plots, and can perform statistical analyses on large data sets with more control and ease than in spreadsheets.
