Lesson 1 - What are data and data literacy?
Whether it is filling out a customer intake form, using restaurant reviews to decide your dinner destination or reviewing the latest dashboard at coronavirus.IN.gov, each of us uses data on a daily basis to learn and guide our decision-making. Often, we interactive with data without realizing it.
Lesson 2 - Misconceptions in data analysis
Statistics are all around us every day. Most sources present these statistics as fact, but what do they really mean? Do they give you all the information you need to know?
Lesson 3 - Telling stories with data visualizations
