Skills you will learn
What are the course deliverables?
• Time Series Forecasting
• Time Series
• Time Series Models
• In practical Time Series Analysis we look at data sets that represent sequential information, such as stock prices, annual rainfall, sunspot activity, the price of agricultural products, and more. We look at several mathematical models that might be used to describe the processes which generate these types of data. We also look at graphical representations that provide insights into our data. Finally, we also learn how to make forecasts that say intelligent things about what we might expect in the future.
• Please take a few minutes to explore the course site. You will find video lectures with supporting written materials as well as quizzes to help emphasize important points. The language for the course is R, a free implementation of the S language. It is a professional environment and fairly easy to learn. You can discuss material from the course with your fellow learners.

## Practical Time Series Analysis at Coursera Curriculum

WEEK 1: Basic Statistics

During this first week, we show how to download and install R on Windows and the Mac. We review those basics of inferential and descriptive statistics that you'll need during the course.

Week 2: Visualizing Time Series, and Beginning to Model Time Series

In this week, we begin to explore and visualize time series available as acquired data sets. We also take our first steps on developing the mathematical models needed to analyze time series data.

Week 3: Stationarity, MA(q) and AR(p) processes

In Week 3, we introduce few important notions in time series analysis: Stationarity, Backward shift operator, Invertibility, and Duality. We begin to explore Autoregressive processes and Yule-Walker equations.

Week 4: AR(p) processes, Yule-Walker equations, PACF

In this week, partial autocorrelation is introduced. We work more on Yule-Walker equations, and apply what we have learned so far to few real-world datasets.

Week 5: Akaike Information Criterion (AIC), Mixed Models, Integrated Models

In Week 5, we start working with Akaike Information criterion as a tool to judge our models, introduce mixed models such as ARMA, ARIMA and model few real-world datasets.

Week 6: Seasonality, SARIMA, Forecasting

In the last week of our course, another model is introduced: SARIMA. We fit SARIMA models to various datasets and start forecasting.
