Data Driven Decision-Making
No matter where their lives or career takes them, being able to interpret, analyze, and communicate mathematical data can help students anticipate and overcome real-world problems in fields like business, criminal justice, science, health, and more.
In this course, students will strengthen their problem solving, initiative, and results driven skills by exploring how to make data-based decisions and present them to a range of audiences. Understanding how to work with, showcase, and draw conclusions from data in a variety of situations will not only help our students solve problems and make successful decisions throughout their lives and careers, it will also help them take decisive action and stay focused on their goals.
- Explain the foundational statistical skills needed to solve problems and draw conclusions
- Solve mathematical problems using statistical methods and tools to draw conclusions.
- Recommend solutions based on the analysis of data using graphs, charts, or other visual means to different audiences.
- Features 5 Video Stories
