Do you know when to use a matrix, data frame, or tibble in R? Do you know how to use each or even what the differences are between these three types of variables?

Finally, he’ll bring back the tidyverse to show why he prefers to work with data frames as tibbles. This is part of a series of videos demonstrating how to functions from base R to make these data compatible with tools from the tidyverse
