Lesson 1 : Intro to Research Methods
You will be introduced to several statistical study methods and learn the positives and negatives of each.
Lesson 2 : Visualizing Data
You will learn how to take your data and display it to the world. You will learn to create and interpret histograms, bar charts, and frequency plots.
Lesson 3 : Central Tendency
In this lesson you will learn to compute and interpret the 3 measures of center for distributions: the mean, median, and mode.
Lesson 4 : Variability
You will learn how to quantify the spread of data using the range and standard deviation. You will also learn how to identify outliers in data sets using the concept of the interquartile range.
Lesson 5 : Standardizing
You will learn how to convert distributions into the standard normal distribution using the Z-score. You will also learn how to compute proportions using standardized distributions.
Lesson 6 : Normal Distribution
You will learn how to use normalized distributions to compute probabilities. You will also learn how to use the Z-table to look up the proportions of observations above, below, or in between values.
Lesson 7 : Sampling Distributions
You will learn how to apply the concepts of probability and normalization to sample data sets.

Udacity est une entreprise fondé par Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, et Mike Sokolsky offrant massives des cours en ligne ouverts (MOOCs).
Selon Thrun, l'origine du nom Udacity vient de la volonté de l'entreprise d'être "audacieux pour vous, l'étudiant ". Bien que Udacity se concentrait à l'origine sur une offre de cours universitaires, la plateforme se concentre désormais plus sur de formations destinés aux professionnels.
