Advanced Statistical Techniques for Data Analytics MATH 3060

Mathematics Course

Course details

​This hands-on course follows on from MATH 1060 - Statistics for Data Analysis and introduces the students to many of the techniques used in the field of data analytics. This introduction will enable students to use general classification and predictive analysis methods. Methods appropriate for scientific data are also discussed. Labs and projects using the open source statistical analysis tool, R, build on the skills learned in Math 1060 to apply these advanced techniques. Upon successful completion, students will be able to effectively analyze large and small data sets while adhering to sound statistical principles. This course is required for COMP 4254 in the Applied Data Analytics Certificate offered by BCIT Computing. MATH 3060 will be offered only in the fall (September) and winter (January) terms.
