Introduction to Data Science

A UCOP approved core mathematics course first implemented in the 2014-2015 school year. IDS has been designated as a "c" course in the A-G requirements. The main goal of IDS is to teach students to think critically about and with data. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for High School Statistics and Probability relevant to data science are taught along with the data demands of good citizenship in the 21st century. Additionally, IDS provides access to rigorous learning that fuses mathematics with computer science through the use of RStudio, an open-source programming language that has long been the standard for academic statisticians and analysts in industry.
