Abstract: The growth of mathematics, statistics and computer science have continued in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics fields. A new field that has emerged from the combination of computer science, statistics and mathematics is the field of data science. Data science has emerged as a field of its own thanks to the significance of training people and developing tools that ae able to utilize the large amounts of data being generated in the modern world. This can be contributed to the development of various tools to be utilized by researchers, professionals, experts, and newcomers. The tools can be as simple as a one purpose application and as complex as a software package with a broad range of usage. One such tool that has emerged is R. R is a programming language that has found a large amount of popularity amongst statisticians. This is due to the capabilities of R being tuned towards statistics and its applications. As R continues to develop, we are able to see its history as well as the various tools R has for teaching statistics.
