Exploring Data: Graphs and Numerical Summaries: Course Description
'Exploring Data: Graphs and Numerical Summaries' is an OpenCourseWare from Th Open University's Mathematics and Statistics Department. This course emphasizes the fundamentals of graphing data and conducting numerical analysis. It is divided into several sections covering a wide range of topics, including data analysis, pie charts and bar charts, histograms and scatterplots and numerical summaries. The course examines seven realworld data sets and how graphs and numerical summaries can be used in their analysis. Students will consider the data from sets that include nuclear power stations, the demographics of the American workforce, cirrhosis and alcoholism and surgical removal of tattoos. Students completing this course should understand that data sets have patterns that can be revealed through graphs and statistical analysis and measurements. The course also teaches students how to describe data sets and develop their sense of intuition as it relates to data analysis.
Materials for this course include online unit notes, a discussion forum, learning journal and knowledge map. If you would like to take advantage of this free course, visit the data explorations course page.
