Event description

Description

Join our 2-day Statistics Short-Course for Data Science!

**PLEASE NOTE: When you sign up for Tuesday's class, you'll automatically be registered for Thursday.

  • In July, the classes will be held on Tuesday, July 24 and Thursday, July 26 from 6:00 - 8:00pm.

As part of the admissions process for the Galvanize Data Science Immersive program, there are two interviews: Programming in Python and Statistics. These materials survey the areas of probability and statistics that will be covered in the statistics interview. In addition to the overview, there are resources for further study that are meant to reinforce the most important topics.

You MUST be an active applicant for the Galvanize Data Science Immersive to attend this free workshop.


What you'll learn:

Day 1 - Probability, Probability distributions, Bayesian and frequentist paradigms

Day 2 - Random variables, Statistical inference, Regression, Classification, Evaluation metrics

We will begin the first day with a gentle introduction to probability and the major distributions used in statistics. We will finish with a concept-driven explanation of frequentist and Bayesian statistics.

On the second day we will dive a bit further into how to make use of probability distributions for inference and hypothesis testing. We will then introduce regression and classification through the use of examples. Finally, we will discuss some of the commonly use methods of evaluating model results.



Setup:

  • Please bring your own laptop to this course and a power cable.
