Mathematica: Applied Statistical Analysis

This course provides experience with the statistical tools that are available in Mathematica. Using real-world and simulated datasets, participants will import and analyze data, work with statistical distributions, and visualize results. Course topics are presented in alternating sessions of lectures and exercises with small class size and ample opportunity for Q&A.

Level: Intermediate

The course is for those who have a basic familiarity with Mathematica. Basic knowledge of descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, and regression is recommended.
