CR: the former COMP 2602, the former Mathematics 2120

LH: 2

PR: Mathematics 1000


Data Analysis with Scripting Languages

introduces the use of scripting languages to solve common data analysis tasks. The control structures and expressions of the language are first discussed. Script solution to storing/retrieving data sets, searching data sets, and performing numeric and statistical calculation are covered. Plotting and visualization for data sets are also presented.
