Statistics for Data Science

The Statistics for Data Science course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive introduction to statistical methods commonly used in data science. This course will cover topics such as probability theory, statistical inference, hypothesis testing, and regression analysis. Students will also learn about the statistical programming language R and how it can be used to perform data analysis and create visualizations.Throughout the course, students will apply their knowledge of statistics to real-world data sets and practice using statistical techniques to draw meaningful insights and make data-driven decisions. By the end of the course, students will have a strong foundation in statistical theory and the practical skills needed to analyze and interpret data for a variety of applications in data science. This course is ideal for anyone who wants to pursue a career in data analysis or data science, as well as professionals who want to enhance their statistical knowledge and skills.

Statistics for Data Science

This module explains about the various types of data, levels of measurement, categorical variables, visualization techniques, numerical variables, histogram charts, cross tables and scatter plots.

This module provides information about the concepts of main measures of central tendency are mean, median and mode, skewness, variance, standard deviation and coefficient of variation, covariance, and correlation coefficient.

This module provides information about the types of data; levels of measurement; graphs and tables for categorical and numerical variables, and relationship between variables; measures of central tendency, asymmetry, variability, and relationship between variables.

This module explains about the Inferential statistics, what is a distribution, normal distribution, standard normal distribution, central limit theorem and the standard error.

This module explains about the estimators and estimates in decision making, confidence intervals used to calculate confidence intervals within a population with an unknown variance. A margin of error is important in Statistics.
