1. In "Notes on R" (available at CRAN), do the "introductory session" (in
appendix).
2. this is a handy place to look for the various functions:
http://www.stat.math.ethz.ch/R-alpha/doc/html/
3. in R, you can get help on any function (e.g. plot) by doing
?plot
4. "Notes on R" has all the info you need to get started.
but here is some help anyway.
to enter some data:
x<-c(1,2,3,4)
y<-(4,5,6,7)
to plot it:
plot(x,y)
histogram:
hist(x)
get freq polygon by adding extra argument to hist()
quantile plot (ogive, straightened on "probability paper"):
qqnorm(x)
