This course teaches Data Science with Maths statistics from basic to advanced level.

When you talk about data science the most important thing is  Statistical MATHS .

This course teaches statistical maths using simple excel. My firm belief is MATHS is 80% part of data science while programming is 20%. If you start data science directly with python , R and so on , you would be dealing with lot of technology things but not the statistical things.

I recommend start with statistics first using simple excel and the later apply the same using python and R. Below are the topics covered in this course.

Lesson 1 :- What is Data science ?
Chapter 1 :- What is Data science  and why do we need it ?

Chapter 2:- Average , Mode , Min and Max using simple Excel.

Chapter 3:- Data science is Multi-disciplinary.

Chapter 5:- Mean,Median,Mode,Max and Min

Chapter 6:- Outlier,Quartile & Inter-Quartile

Chapter 7:- Range and Spread

Lesson 3 - Standard Deviation, Normal Distribution & Emprical Rule.

Chapter 14:- 68,95 and 98 emprical rule.

Chapter 15:- Understanding distribution of 68,95 and 98 in-depth.

Lesson 4 :- The ZScore calculation
Chapter 16:- Probability of getting 50% above and 50% less.

Chapter 17:- Probability of getting 20 value.

Chapter 18:- Probability of getting 40 to 60.
