Exploratory Statistics with R

The exploratory Statistics course at Université Paris Dauphine has now started again and I am giving as in the past years the version of the course in English for interested students. Here are the slides (in English):

The course is intended for our third year students who already have two probability courses and one statistics course as background. The idea is to work only with small groups and only in the computer lab, so that they can experiment on the go. This approach is the result of several failed attempts when the students would not show up in class but only in the labs. The students take an on-line exam at the end of the course in January with multiple choice questions that must be argumented by attached R programs. This follows several years when the students were handling projects, due to massive cheating!
