About This Course

Random variables can obviously affect how your data is analyzed, but they also house important information that is open to investigation. In this course, you’ll learn how to mine deeper into these data points.

Across 12 lessons, you’ll develop an understanding of what random variables are and how to use probability distributions to analyze them.

By the end of the course, you should feel comfortable in handling random variables within your data analysis.
