About this Guided Project

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. In this task there will be an explanation of the Project, a quick discussion of the Rhyme Interface and a short Instructor Bio.

  2. Filter is a dplyr verb that allows the R user the ability to filter rows by a user specified definition. In this Task the Instructor will go over how to use Filter and then provide a couple examples.

  3. This Task will be a continuation of the Filter conversation and application.

  4. Select is a dplyr verb that allows the user to select variable (or columns)

  5. The Pipe is from the magittr package and is used to create fluidity among the dplyr verbs, allowing the user to tie multiple dplyr verbs together.

  6. Group By allows the user the ability to group by certain factors within a variable.

  7. Mutate allows the user to create new data columns or variables. The functions can be user defined or one of the canned functions included within the Mutate function.

Recommended experience
