DATA SCIENCE I: Data Science is currently one of the fastest growing fields in the world. Employers want to make evidence based decisions which requires data manipulation and analysis. Many high schools have not made or are not equipped to handle this transition towards data science. UMBC's Data Science Academy curriculum was created to spark an interest in high school students who want to learn more about this expanding field. The data science program is an overview to topics discussed in introductory data science and statistics courses. This program was designed to provide students with exposure to a wide variety of topics that will prepare them for AP Statistics course, elements of a high school programming course and a college level data science course. This program gives students an edge with critical skills that colleges and employers see as essential in almost every math, science, computer and engineering field. In DATA SCIENCE I students develop the ability to mine, manipulate and visualize data. Learn how to extract data from websites such as Wikipedia, GitHub and other data science websites.

DATA SCIENCE II: As we move into the twenty-first century, the need for workers with advanced understanding and experience in data science is vital. In this second course, (only available for students who have taken Data Science and the Power of Statistics) you will learn to create advanced visualizations, develop a web application to visualize graphics dynamically and manipulate data with top of the line tools. This class is being offered after numerous requests by students to go deeper into the materials.

DATA SCIENCE III:As we move into the twenty-first century, the need for workers with advanced understanding, experience, and communication in data science is vital. As student progress to Data Science III, they develop and hone their data science skills needed to dissect some of the more involved problems and challenging issues that come with analyzing data. Data Science III will teach students to blend foundational and intermediate computer science skills with data analytics to manipulate and/or aggregate multidimensional data into a format that can be analyzed within the R using the tidyverse.

MACHINE LEARNING AND STATISTICS I: Data Science is currently one of the fastest growing fields in the world. Employers want to make evidence based decisions which requires data manipulation and analysis. Many high schools have not made or are not equipped to handle this transition towards data science. UMBC's Data Science Academy curriculum was created to spark an interest in high school students who want to learn more about this expanding field. For MACHINE LEARNING AND STATISTICS I the concept of "Inference" is foundational in students understanding of statistics. Students will not only learn the fundamentals of statistics, but also acquire the ability to implement supervised machine learning algorithms. This course will reinforce R programming skills (learned in Data Science I) by developing and learning the skill of inference (probability, counting, and sampling distributions).
