Welcome to Probability and Statistics for Business and Data Science!
In this course we cover what you need to know about probability and statistics to succeed in business and the data science field!
This practical course will go over theory and implementation of statistics to real world problems. Each section has example problems, in course quizzes, and assessment tests.
We’ll start by talking about the basics of data, understanding how to examine it with measurements of central tendency, dispersion, and also building an understanding of how bivariate data sources can relate to each other.
Afterwards we’ll dive into probability , learning about combinations and permutations, as well as conditional probability and how to apply bayes theorem.
Then we’ll move on to discussing the most common distributions found in statistics, creating a solid foundation of understanding how to work with uniform, binomial, poisson, and normal distributions.
Up next we’ll talk about statistics, applying what we’ve learned so far to real world business cases, including hypothesis testing and the student’s T distribution.
We’ll end the course with 3 sections on advanced topics, such as ANOVA (analysis of variance), understanding regression analysis, and finally performing chi squared analysis.
The sections are modular and organized by topic, so you can reference what you need and jump right in!
Our course includes HD Video with clear explanations and high quality animations, we also include extensive case studies to show you how to apply this knowledge to the real world.
We’ll cover everything you need to know about statistics and probability to clearly tackle real world business and data science problems!
