Description 

This micro-credential aims to facilitate a high level understanding of statistical techniques used in the analysis of data. This course introduces students to the philosophy and methods of modern statistical data analysis and inferential methods. The course has a strong emphasis on computing and graphical methods, and uses a variety of real-world problems to motivate the theory and methods required for carrying out statistical data analysis. This course makes extensive use of R statistical analysis package interfaced through R Studio.

Topics 

  1. Hypothesis testing for one and two populations
  2. Analysis of variance
  3. Simple linear regression
  4. Multiple linear regression
