The statistical environment R: some advantages for teaching and research


A computer program is introduced for data analysis, which could be very interesting in order to be used as a teaching or research tool. After a short historical introduction, the specific elements of this one in relation to other traditional statistical packages are explained. Then we offer a whole view about how the program works, and this is illustrated from some usual tasks in teaching statistics (computation of descriptive indexes, parameters estimation, statistical contrasts, etc.). Finally, some its advantages for research are commented and the paper concludes pointing out how oneself could begin to use this program.
