Python for Data Science | Py4-DS Python 3 Data Science Binder

This repo contains resource materials that are part of the Data Science MicroMasters program of UC San DiegoX in edX, which introduces a collection of powerful open-source tools needed to analyze data and to conduct data science. Data science, which is also known as data-driven science, is an interdisciplinary field of scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured, similar to data mining. In this course, covering some of the most used python packages in the field of Data Science. A very effective overview on Jupyter notebook , Numerical Python , Matplotlib , Pandas , NLTK , Sci-Kit and lots of projects and famous data sets recorded in kaggle.

Update 2019

Tutorials and Exercise of this course is now separated into per-weeks. You can just download the repo and can able start sequentially. You may need to download some files which is larger than allowed file sizes (100MB).

  • week 1: introduction of Data Science
  • week 2: Basic Python
  • week 3: Introduction of NumPy
  • week 4: Introduction of Pandas
  • week 5: Introduction of Matplotlib
  • week 7: Introduction of Machine Learning
  • week 8: Natural Language Processing

Note: Week 6 was only for a Mini-Projects based on Week 1-5.


Downlaod Python 3x from the official website.


pip install numpy
pip install pandas
pip install pillow
pip install matplotlib
pip install -U scikit-learn
pip install nltk

or just download anaconda distribution to get all the necessary pacakges at a time. You may also need to install git to download the repo as follow and to run:

git clone
cd Python for Data Science
jupyter notebook

Now, go do the desired notebook, files that end with '.ipynb'. To run the file, go to the menu then click on Cell > Run.

Folder structure

Apart from the separated per-weeks; The following directory, Python for Data Science holds the most important content combinedly. You may prefer in this way if you're confortable with the packages and contents.
