Description: According to Venkatagiri, data analysts may understand how to run sophisticated statistics software, but they don’t necessarily understand “what’s under the hood.” In this course, students will study “descriptive statistics,” learning how to apply data sets in simulations to solve problems using R software and Excel. In addition, they will learn the following:

  • “Clean[ing] up a dataset and summarize[ing the data using single point measures of centrality and dispersion
  • Classify[ing] variables by scale and aggregate[ing] them with pivot tables
  • Build[ing] an understanding of probability, joint and marginal probability, conditional probability
  • Apply[ing] Bayes Rule to invert probabilities on a decision tree”

Review: No reviews.

Additional Background: The second part of this course will start in October 2015. It consists of four parts overall.
