This hands-on introduction to statistics for data science gives you the tools required to make sense of data and draw *valid* conclusions. The focus of this course is on statistical thinking. Concepts will be introduced intuitively before being expanded formally. You will learn how to think in terms of distributions---not single point estimates. Statistical tools will be introduced in the context of how to use them to gain insight and solve problems. You will also learn how to use the powerful, industry-standard R environment to do the number-crunching in this statistics for data science course.
