Some comments from our community college department are that teaching something like R while teaching stats is a “fool’s errand”, which is discouraging. I think some exposure to R is a good skill for a student’s resume. Do you have an suggestions for a good point in the term to teach R, and how much should one teach?

Could you say, in a nutshell, how such an intro data science course is different than intro stats? (I feel kinda dumb asking, but...)
