- Understand the Wolfram computer language
Import your own data into Mathematica
Do statistical analysis of the data
- Create plots and graphs from your data
- A basic understanding of statistical terms.
This course is for anyone in the healthcare and life sciences interested in doing their own statistical analysis. You will learn an easy to use, powerful computer language and how to use it to do statistical analysis. The introduction shows you how to get a copy of Mathematica or how to use the free version in the cloud. The Wolfram company also provides complimentary access to Wolfram|One for all students who take this course. More information is available in the BONUS MATERIAL video lecture.
Although the course assumes some knowledge of statistical concepts, it does supply enough information on the basics of statistics, so that most learners will find it a useful resource enough resource to learn these concepts, over and above learning how to write code to do the actual analysis.
The course is made up of clearly defined sections, each with its own set of video lectures. The first video in each section is accompanied by notebook files and, where required, a spreadsheet data file. The notebook in each section marked Recording... is a copy of the notebook that I use in the video lectures. The other notebook file contains much more description of both the code and the statitics. You can use this as an additional study resource as you learn how to use Mathematica.
The course starts with a gentle introduction to using Mathematica by showing you how to perform simple calculations. From here it progresses through descriptive statistics, plotting and charting, the creation of simulated data and the importation of existing data.
Before too long you will be able to do advanced statistical tests such as parametric and nonparametric tests and even survival analysis. All with a few short lines of code.
Get ready to understand and do your own statistics.

Introduction to this section.
In this first proper look at Mathematica we complete a few simple arithmetical calculations.
This video shows you how to create random integers and random real numbers.
In this video we take a look at specifying the directory or folder on your computer where the spreadsheet file resides so as to make it easier for Mathematica to import the file.
If you are using the cloud version, simply upload the spreadsheet file into the Home directory (where your notebook file should also be kept).
While it is easy to use SemanticImport to work with a spreadsheet file in the desktop version of Mathematica, it is a bit more complicated to achieve this in the Cloud. In this video lecture we look at how to upload a spreadsheet file and use it in an online notebook as a dataset.
