Description
MSIM451/551 is a course that focuses on analysis techniques appropriate to the conduct of modeling and simulation studies. In latest course surveys, students suggested the addition of more examples on using the instructed theoretical knowledge for analyzing actual data sets to reinforce their learning. In the regard to their suggestions and the actual performance of previous students, this project intends to integrate an open source software, namely R, in teaching to enhance the student learning experience. We will leverage the powerful statistical capability and visualization functions to offer students the opportunities to improve their learning through various examples and hands-on exercises.
