In this lesson, scatter plots and KDE plots are discussed.

A scatter plot represents the values of data as points in a *cartesian plane*. It displays the data points based on the cartesian coordinates on an XY-plane.
It is preferably used when a pair of dependent and independent variables need to be represented or visualized.
