|1||Python for Data Science: Fundamentals||This course covers the basics of Python, including the execution of codes, printing of a statement, commenting on codes, understanding of variables, employment of conditional statements and understanding of an assignment operator.|
|2||Pandas and NumPy Fundamentals||This course introduces two of the most important packages in Python – NumPy and Pandas. An understanding of both packages is essential for cleaning, manipulating and visualization of data.|
|3||Exploratory Data Visualization||This course introduces Matplotlib, the main package for graphing in Python. It shows how to plot line charts, use sub-plots to plot multiple charts, and plot bar charts, scatter plots, histograms and box plots.|
|4||Data Cleaning and Analysis||This course builds on the prior knowledge of Pandas to introduce candidates to data aggregation and working with dataframes.|
|5||SQL Fundamentals||This course builds on the prior knowledge of data analysis and helps candidates to work with more advanced tools offered by Python. The course uses Python to provide an introductory refresher course in statistics.|
|6||Statistics Intermediate: Averages and Variability||In this course, candidates will learn how to use Python to summarize the distribution of a variable with a single value, such as the mean, the weighted mean, the median, the mode, variance, and standard deviation.|
|7a||Probability: Fundamentals||Learn the fundamentals of probability theory using Python|
|7b||Hypothesis Testing: Fundamentals||Learn more advanced statistics concepts for more powerful data analysis.|
|8||Linear Algebra for Machine Learning||This refresher course covers basic concepts of linear algebra, which are important to understanding machine learning algorithms that are covered in the FDP program.|
