Introduction to Data

Visualizing, Analyzing, and Interpreting Data

To become informed citizens of an increasingly complex and data-driven world, all of us need to understand statistics and data. Basic knowledge of data analysis will help us see behind the numbers in the news, interpret an abundance of information, and make better personal and work decisions.

The activities in the example datasets build learner’s knowledge of key data-analysis concepts and skills through investigations of real-world datasets. They provide contexts and opportunities for learners to analyze data in depth using a variety of statistical measures and graphical representations.
