About this Class

This class provides a basic overview of creating plots using ggplot. ggplot is a part of the Tidyverse, a collection of R packages designed for data science. This class will focus on identifying the appropriate packages for plotting, defining plot aesthetics, and demonstrating how to add layers to ggplot graphs.  You must have taken Introduction to R and RStudio class to be successful in this class. 

By the end of this class, participants should be able to discuss the connection between data, aesthetics, & the grammar of graphics, describe how ggplot works, define geoms, and distinguish between individual geoms and collective geoms.
