Data Analysis and Problem Solving


The purpose of this course is use data analysis to help solve problems such as estimating how much money we are going to need to complete a project or how much time we are going to need. We might also use it to analyse responses for marketing research or to examine to identify areas that need addressing for performance. Before we can do that, we need to understand what data analysis is and how it can help us.
