## Course Description

## Discover Data Manipulation with pandas

With this course, you’ll learn why pandas is the world's most popular Python library, used for everything from data manipulation to data analysis. You’ll explore how to manipulate DataFrames, as you extract, filter, and transform real-world datasets for analysis.With pandas, you’ll explore all the core data science concepts. Using real-world data, including Walmart sales figures and global temperature time series, you’ll learn how to import, clean, calculate statistics, and create visualizations—using pandas to add to the power of Python.

## Work with pandas Data to Explore Core Data Science Concepts

You’ll start by mastering the pandas basics, including how to inspect DataFrames and perform some fundamental manipulations. You’ll also learn about aggregating DataFrames, before moving on to slicing and indexing.You’ll wrap up the course by learning how to visualize the contents of your DataFrames, working with a dataset that contains weekly US avocado sales.
