  • Document the data exploration process using Jupyter Notebooks.
  • Familiarize yourself with common data storage methods and file formats.
  • Understand the data preparation and discovery pipeline.
  • Mini Project 1: Exploration and data analysis


Week 5 -7: Statistical Modelling

Statistical modelling techniques are the bedrock of data science – in this module we delve further into mathematics and statistics. Students will evaluate and explore various prepared datasets using a variety of classical statistical methods to learn key statistical concepts in preparation for the more contemporary machine learning methods.

  • Basic Math with Python
  • Normal Distribution, Binomial Distribution and Poisson Distribution
  • Understanding of Confidence Interval
  • Preparation of training and hypothesis testing
