DESCRIPTION

This course will equip you with tools and strategies for translating real world problems into quantitative terms, and will introduce analytical tools and techniques for generating quantitative results. It will utilize mathematical concepts from statistics and algebra in conjunction with the powerful scripting capabilities of python to chew through data sets large and small efficiently and accurately.

Who should take this course?

The ideal student for this course is a natural detective. Data science requires extreme attention to detail and concern for accuracy and integrity of information. If you’re the kind of person that turns over every rock and searches around every corner for what might be hidden, you might be a great fit for this course.

How do I know I’m Ready?

This course is heavy on math (statistics, probability, and algebra) and python, so knowledge of these subjects is crucial. You’ve ideally dug into an open data set or two and wished you had a better way to digest and disseminate it all.
