## Course Lessons

Lesson 1

#### Data Visualization in Data Analysis

In this lesson, see the motivations for why data visualization is an important part of the data analysis process and where it fits in.

Lesson 2

#### Design of Visualizations

Learn about elements of visualization design, especially to avoid those elements that can cause a visualization to fail.

Lesson 3

#### Univariate Exploration of Data

In this lesson, you will see how you can use matplotlib and seaborn to produce informative visualizations of single variables.

Lesson 4

#### Bivariate Exploration of Data

In this lesson, build up from your understanding of individual variables and learn how to use matplotlib and seaborn to look at relationships between two variables.

Lesson 5

#### Multivariate Exploration of Data

In this lesson, see how you can use matplotlib and seaborn to visualize relationships and interactions between three or more variables.

Lesson 6

#### Explanatory Visualizations

Previous lessons covered how you could use visualizations to learn about your data. In this lesson, see how to polish up those plots to convey your findings to others!

Lesson 7 • Project

#### Communicate Data Findings

Choose a dataset, either your own or a Udacity-curated dataset, and perform an exploratory data analysis using Python. Then, create a presentation with explanatory plots that conveys your findings.
