Data science for everyone: The truth about cats and dogs – Anna Fergusson
Data science is all about integrating statistical and computational thinking with data. Anna Fergusson’s (University of Auckland) hands-on workshop explored one of the learning tasks Anna designed to introduce students to measures of popularity on the web and APIs.
Participants used familiar statistics tools and approaches, such as data cards, collaborative group tasks and sampling activities, and also try out some new computational tools for learning from data. Statistical concepts covered include features of data distributions and informal inference.
