Details about Probability and Statistics for Data Science: Math + R + Data Chapman & Hall/CRC Data Science Series:
Probability and Statistics for Data Science: Math R Data covers "math stat"—distributions, expected value, estimation etc.—but takes the phrase "Data Science" in the title quite seriously: * Real datasets are used extensively. * All data analysis is supported by R coding. * Includes many Data Science applications, such as PCA, mixture distributions, random graph models, Hidden Markov models, linear and logistic regression, and neural networks. * Leads the student to think critically about the "how" and "why" of statistics, and to "see the big picture." * Not "theorem/proof"-oriented, but concepts and models are stated in a mathematically precise manner. Prerequisites are calculus, some matrix algebra, and some experience in programming. Norman Matloff is a professor of computer science at the University of California, Davis, and was formerly a statistics professor there. He is on the editorial boards of the Journal of Statistical Software and The R Journal. His book Statistical Regression and Classification: From Linear Models to Machine Learning was the recipient of the Ziegel Award for the best book reviewed in Technometrics in 2017. He is a recipient of his university's Distinguished Teaching Award.
Major: Professional Math Tutor
I have a PhD in Math from Yale. I am currently a faculty member at the University of Maryland, College Park. As a student I won a Silver Medal in the International Math Olympiad (1996 IMO). As a coach, I have extensive experience training students for math competitions, both at high school and college level. I have taught math at different levels. Currently I only work with motivated students who are interested in learning math beyond the usual school curriculum. I can help you prepare for ... Read more
