For these articles, the student may find a resource on the use of Greek Letters in Mathematics helpful. Please see my (upcoming) post on the use of greek letters in mathematics and their representation in statistical software.

**Questions for the Students**

For this course on data science we are very interested in

- statistical concepts
- mathematical concepts that are critical to statistical programming

- the concept of a function
- the properties of arrays, vectors, matrices and other data structures

- How do we understand visual data through graphs?
- How is our understanding of visual data linked to mathematical concepts that represent data?

**For the ambitious**

Read Probability and Statistics - Advanced(Second Edition) . If you find your eyes glazing over when reviewing formulas, try this strategy:

- Complete a first read of this work that skims over each chapter.
- Try to identify the general purpose of the discussion on data analysis in statistics.
- Take a break and think some about what you have read.
- Read the work carefully from one end to the other over a period of sittings. Each time you read something new, take some time to think about possible uses of the mathematical concept.
