For someone without some knowledge of statistics, it might prove very challenging. I am a math teacher and was largely able to skip of the math portion and concentrate on the analysis using R. They offered lots of supplemental reading for increasing an understanding of stats and did some basic explanation of the concepts but without understanding things like r-squared and exponential functions, SOME students might get frustrated. I'm generally a fan of the EdX setup and found they did a good job of providing the right amount of comprehension checks - in fact, sometimes this got a little repetitive and I just skipped some problems if I felt I already got the point and didn't want to do the calculations. Overall I would recommend this course if you are looking to learn more about R while reviewing your knowledge of basic statistics.
