This course is an introduction to data analysis with the Python programming language, and is aimed at beginners. We introduce how to work with different data structure in Python. We covered the most popular modules, including Numpy, Scipy, Pandas, matplotlib, and Seaborn, to do data analytics and visualization. We use ipython notebook to demonstrate the results of codes and change codes interactively during the class.
If you have good knowledge of basic data types (e.g. string, numeric), data structures (e.g. list, tuple, dictionary) and are familiar with concepts of list comprehension and for/while loop, you are good to go with the Python for Data Analysis and Visualization course.
Certificates are awarded at the end of the program at the satisfactory completion of the course. Students are evaluated on a pass/fail basis for their performance on the required homework and final project (where applicable). Students who complete 80% of the homework and attend a minimum of 85% of all classes are eligible for the certificate of completion.
