This course dives deep into normal distributions, also known as Gaussian distributions, while also introducing you to the law of large numbers and the Central Limit Theorem. You will begin by using Python's SciPy library to generate a normal distribution and examine the use of several available functions that allow you to make estimations on normally distributed data. This course will also help you understand and visualize the law of large numbers and explore the Central Limit theorem by generating multiple samples and analyzing them. After you are done with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge to analyze data and build your own models.
