In this course, you’ll learn the most common basic data structures you’ll encounter in the data analysis workflow. You’ll learn how to work with vectors, matrices, lists, and DataFrames. You’ll be able to index vectors and matrices to extract specific elements and apply functions to vectors and matrices to perform calculations. You’ll also learn how to create and index lists to extract objects. Finally, you’ll learn how to define a tibble, filter and subset the data in a tibble and employ piping with tibbles.
