Course titleIntroduction to Data Science and Statistics
Pre-requisiteCompletion of Algebra 1 and Geometry
This course provides a basic introduction to statistics and data analysis.† Statistics is the study of variation. It is the tools and concepts that have been developed; over centuries; to help us understand variation.† We start with how we take variation in the world and turn it into data.† We will then use the statistical tools and concepts to explore variation and patterns within our data; construct models for our data and finally evaluate how well our models explained the data.
This course combines statistics with computer science in analyzing and interpreting data. It fulfills the third year minimum requirement for UC/ CSUs (comparable to Algebra II). In this course; students explore taking variation in the world and turning it into data for analysis and mathematical modeling in order to answer interesting questions. By the end of this course students will be able to select an analytic strategy that is appropriate to the data at hand; organize and enter the data using the coding language R; and create data visualizations to help explain/ report results.
