Data Science Lessons

This page shares five units of youcubed lessons that introduce students (and teachers) to data science. The units start with an introduction to the concept of data and move to lessons that invite students to explore their own data sets.  These lessons teach important content through a pattern-seeking, exploratory approach, and are designed to engage students actively. The culminating unit is a citizen science project that gives students an opportunity to conduct a data inquiry. The lessons accompany a new online course for teachers, where some of the lessons are featured, along with other lesson ideas. These lessons are offered with ideas for in-person or online teaching, and can be taught at any time of year.
