Title: Teaching Data Intuition: a Book
Author(s): Rebecca Barter* and Bin Yu
Companies: University of California Berkeley and UC Berkeley
Keywords: education; data science; book; learning; teaching

We are writing a book that teaches data science from a perspective of critical thinking and intuitive understanding. In contrast to the vast majority of data science books that are focused primarily either on math or software, our book provides the reader with real (messy) data experience, and teaches analytic concepts using hands-on examples and explanatory graphics rather than math or code alone. In this talk, I will provide a sneak peak into the book, discuss why it is seriously needed, and explore its potential impact.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
