This is a Swirl lesson that will be done in teams to review R commands and using R studio. It is called “Gérer et analyser des données” (it is in Québec French!). Students will do it in class, as a team with me present to help them. Students will first learn how Swirl works, then they will review variable classes and how to manage a dataset and modify it (ex: change the variable class). They will then do simple visualisation (histogram, plot, boxplot) and modify the appearance of a boxplot.
