Statistics is a vital field for software developers and data scientists.
In this course, you'll learn the essential concepts of statistics - all taught to you by Monika Wahi, a lecturer at Labouré College.
This course will introduce you to the various methods scientists use to collect, organize, summarize, interpret, and reach conclusions about data. It places an emphasis on demonstrating that statistics is more than mathematical calculations.
By using examples gathered from real life, you'll learn how to use statistical methods as analytical tools to develop generalizations and draw better conclusions.
This course covers:
- What statistics is
- Experimental design
- Frequency histogram and distribution
