Introduction to Data Science (IDS) Project

Center X

The Introduction to Data Science (IDS) Project at Center X prepares high school teachers to teach a mathematics curriculum and to develop pedagogy that helps students learn to reason with, and think critically about, data in all forms. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for High School Statistics and Probability, which are relevant to data science and the Standards for Mathematics Practices, are taught along with the critical understanding of the role of data in our society. IDS provides access to rigorous learning that fuses statistics with computer science through the use of RStudio, an open-source programming language that is the industry standard for statisticians and analysts. IDS is a C-approved mathematics course in the University of California A-G requirements and has received a statistics designation. IDS is an excellent course option for meeting quantitative reasoning and/or 3rd-or 4th-year mathematics requirements.
