Data Literacy for Teens
In this day and age, understanding data, statistics, and graphs is an essential skill. Mark Twain was not the first one to say, “There are lies, darn lies, and statistics.” Why does this quote resonate so much? Does correlation imply causation? What is the deal with sampling? Why are those ubiquitous polls on social media mostly meaningless? What is experiment design?
In this class we will learn the basics of descriptive and inferential statistics. Through activities and discussions, students will become ethical and responsible data producers and critical thinkers when consuming data.
