Learn the essential techniques of statistics for data analysis using the world’s most used and famous spreadsheet program Microsoft Excel.

The [course_title] course teaches you histograms, Pareto charts, Boxplots, Bayes’ theorem, and others. You will explore the core principles of statistics and basic probability—from both the conceptual and applied perspectives. The course also focuses on statistics, basic probability, random variables, sampling and confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing. Finally, you will learn to explore these concepts and principles using the environment, functions, and visualizations of Excel.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
