Data Science at Carroll College
What is Data Science?
- Computer Science is more than just programming
- Statistics is more than just estimators and tests
- Mathematics is more than just proofs and abstraction
- Data Science is the interplay between computer science, statistics, and mathematics along with domain-specific knowledge to extract meaning and make predictions from data.
Data Science is Open Ended and Exploratory
To support this, we use
- Active and collaborative explorations
- Real data
- Open ended projects
