90% of the worlds data has been created in the last 2 years, which means our lives and the lives of our students are filled with data. All students should leave school being able to make sense of data, be critical in what they see and be able to separate fact from fiction.

To help us do this youcubed have released 5 new units of work introducing data science to teachers and students. A new online course to support these is coming late July.
The 5 units are titled

  1. Data is everywhere
  2. Working with data analysis tools
  3. Measures of centre and spread
  4. Understanding variability
  5. A data collection project

Most of the lessons make use of CODAP  a free data exploration tool that is being increasingly used in New Zealand classrooms.
