Algorithmic and Computational Thinking Using R Software.

Summary

This workshop will provide participants with a hands on experience on implementing R software in their senior mathematics courses. R is an open source and internationally renowned software with capabilities that far surpasses the Graphics Calculators. In addition to using the implemented functions in R, students will have the freedom to manipulate R codes to create their own functions, as well create new functions and consequently undertake bigger projects (using R codes) in mathematics like modelling real-life phenomenon using mathematics functions and make inferences. The workshop will attempt to provide examples of using R in the following topics: Functions and Graphs, Trigonometric and Inverse Trigonometric Functions, Exponential & Logarithmic Functions, Counting and probability, Arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, Differential & Integral Calculus and Applications, Statistics: Discrete & Continuous Random Variables; Point and Interval Estimates; Statistical Inference, Combinatorics, Vectors in the plane and 3D, Matrices; Real and complex numbers. Participants are required to install R software from the following link and bring along their laptops: https://www.r-project.org/
