+ The MOOC way to learn Python and Data Science: + + 1. **Learn Python** + + * [Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python](https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-computer-science-mitx-6-00-1x-8) + * [Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science](https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-computational-thinking-data-mitx-6-00-2x-4) + * [Using Python for Research](https://www.edx.org/course/using-python-research-harvardx-ph526x) + + + 2. **Learn Probability** + + * [Introduction to Probability - The Science of Uncertainty](https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-probability-science-mitx-6-041x-1) + + + 3. **Learn Linear Algebra** + + * [Linear Algebra - Foundations to Frontiers](https://www.edx.org/course/linear-algebra-foundations-frontiers-utaustinx-ut-5-04x) + * [Applications of Linear Algebra Part 1](https://www.edx.org/course/applications-linear-algebra-part-1-davidsonx-d003x-1) + * [Applications of Linear Algebra Part 2](https://www.edx.org/course/applications-linear-algebra-part-2-davidsonx-d003x-2) + + + 4. **Learn Algorithms and Data structures** + + * [Introduction to Algorithms](https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-006-introduction-to-algorithms-fall-2011/) + * [Design and Analysis of Algorithms](https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-046j-design-and-analysis-of-algorithms-spring-2015/) + + 5. **Machine Learning** + + * [Computational Probability and Inference](https://www.edx.org/course/computational-probability-inference-mitx-6-008-1x#!) + + + Note: All the courses using Python as medium of Instruction, there are other courses that use **R** language, which is certainly useful for Data analysis. There are courses offered by Coursera and Udacity + related to Data science, which you should check out too. I just sampled courses that i think are good starting point to learn Data science. Also, the recommended way is to go top-down in the orde specified. + There are still so many things to learn to become a data scientist such as machine learning, data visualization etc. (which i would fill out later)
