Course Description

Mastery is only possible through practice. You have successfully completed Statistical Thinking I & II. These courses will equip you with the hacker stats and probabilistic mindset needed to extract valuable insights from your data. Now is the time to build your foundation and start practicing your craft.

This course will help you apply your statistical thinking skills, exploratory data analysis and parameter estimation to real-world data. First, you will examine data from 2013 and 2015. This will allow you to determine the relative speed of swimmers. Next, you will perform a statistical analysis to analyze the controversy surrounding 2013 Worlds. Swimmers claimed there was a slight current. The frequency and magnitude of earthquakes around the world will be studied. The US's seismicity has seen a rise in recent years, with high pressure waste water injections at sites of oil extraction becoming more common. You will also be analyzing seismicity changes in Oklahoma. These data sets will be explained to you and you will have the opportunity to expand your understanding and use statistics and Python to understand them.
