Introduction to Data Science

This free self-study course introduces Core Maths and A level Mathematics students to data science. It aims to give students an appreciation of the value of data science, and to support them in making informed choices about their future study and career options.

The course is designed to be studied independently during the summer term of Year 12, or over the summer break between Years 12 and 13. It consists of an introduction and eight lessons of short videos and programming tasks, in Python. Guidance for teachers is available.
