Are you looking to find out how many different rosters of officers can be selected for the school government? Or do you want to collect and graphically present the data of your business to stakeholders? These examples and many more are encountered every day in our lives and the way to deal with them is through the mathematical branch of Probability, Combinatorics, and Statistics. This free online course is designed so that you can not only learn how to collect, study and present data in a meaningful way, but also analyze that data to get the best interpretation. The course starts off with a study of Probability and combinatorics. An explanation of the fundamental principle of counting will be provided to the learner which can be used to figure out various outcomes in probability situations. An analysis of permutations and combinations will also be provided along with key formulae and symbology used so that the learner can comprehensively grasp this important topic.

Next, the course moves towards the crucial topic of probability theory. Do you come across statements in your daily life like, probably this method is correct or It is likely that he may not come today? All these terms, 'probably', 'likely', 'possible', 'chance' etc., convey the idea that there is uncertainty about the happening of a particular event. In such cases, we talk about chance or probability, which is a quantitative measure of our degree of certainty. The learner will be provided with the various types of probability calculations and the important formulas that can be used to evaluate these scenarios. The probability of events that can and cannot occur simultaneously, conditional and empirical probability will all be analyzed in detail for the learner. Examples will also be provided during the course of the learners' study so that they can thoroughly understand the concepts and apply them in their respective situations and scenarios.

Ever wondered how you could visually present the average scores of players on your sports team? Or how to collect and present data for a financial budget presentation? We take a look at the science related to the study and presentation of data known as statistics. Firstly, an explanation of the different methods of displaying data will be provided. Graphical representation is the most attractive method of describing and representing data. It provides the user a chance to take a quick glance at the relationship between different kinds of information. The learner will be able to understand and construct various forms of graphs and tables based on the type of information that is available i.e. quantitative or qualitative. Diagrams and examples of each type of graph and table will be provided for clarity to the learner. A description of the measures of central tendency will also be provided. Mean, median, and mode along with variance and standard deviation will be explained in detail along with formulas. A diagrammatical analysis of scatterplots and bell curves will also be provided towards the end of the course. The use of probability and statistics is all around us in our daily lives. From sports to the medical field, small businesses to governments, all use these techniques to carry out analyses and figures which are relevant to the respective users. So don’t waste any more time and enroll now in this course on Alison.com to get fully acquainted with the tools you need to grow and contribute.
