Exciting new data courses available in Sem 2
Data is everywhere. How can we better use and understand it?
ECMS has introduced two new Data Science courses available to all students across ECMS.
Classes start Monday 26 July so make sure you're enrolled by then!
MATHS 1005 - Data Literacy will help you better understand data and how to visually represent data in a way that is clear and meaningful. Data Literacy training will teach students from all backgrounds how to interpret and critically appraise claims made by machine learning and quantitative data science methods, and understand both the possibilities and pitfalls of these emerging sciences.
MATHS 1006 - Data Taming & Prediction is a practical introduction to the practice of wrangling with, finding relationships in, and making predictions from, messy datasets using statistical methods. The course introduces the principles “tidy data", types of data and data formats, exploratory data analysis, data transformation, as well as model fitting and prediction using statistical machine learning tools.
