AbstractAn understanding of statistics is becoming increasingly important in our world, and as teachers we have an opportunity to develop student competencies in this area. We will introduce participants to the fundamentals of data science, and look at how open data science activities can be integrated into any teaching environment (especially K-12 contexts). We'll look at ways to incorporate statistics and data analytics into curricular outcomes, explore available resources, and talk about how you and your students can analyse data with Python in Jupyter notebooks (CC licensed) through the federally-funded Callysto project.
