Do you use R in your teaching practice?

R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics.  More information on R is available here.

I started using R recently as an alternative to both SPSS and Excel.  I am finding that the tasks for which I used SPSS can be carried out in R and the presentation of information is superior to both SPSS and Excel.

If anyone is using R, please contact me as I am interested in working collaboratively with other colleagues at BU.

Here are three examples of R’s graphical capability; a Likert chart, heatmap and direction chart.
