Fit various types of time series models to real world data and use them to forecast the future.
Understand how to assess model fit in time series data.
Know the reasons why time series models and methodology are an important toolkit for any data scientist.
In this 2 hour long project-based course, you will learn the basics of time series analysis in R. By the end of this project, you will understand the essential theory for time series analysis and have built each of the major model types (Autoregressive, Moving Average, ARMA, ARIMA, and decomposition) on a real world data set to forecast the future. We will go over the essential packages and functions in R as well to make time series analysis easy.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

Great summary of time series modelling. The external tool is a bit annoying but the course is great. The student start by downloading all materials and then use RStudio Cloud.
Exceptional! A background in basic statistics (hypothesis test and regression) . as well as a basic understanding of R is a nice-to-have. But not mandatory.
Not to bad for being a short guided course. Concise and a good overview. After this you may very well do a serious course if you want to get anywhere
A wonderfully-knit course! Although the Rhyme interface is a bit slow, the program is very well taught and understood. Thanks for the project!
