When you are learning something new, it looks like the image on the right, where everything appears upside down. It is confusing. It becomes even more confusing when you add technical concepts, math concepts, and research design concepts - which is the essence of data science. Our mission is to simplify the jargon, breakdown the concepts, and help you understand the basics so that you can teach data science at any level.
We are a team of volunteers and we welcome any content that is "accessible" - meaning, we appreciate writing where a ten cent word is much preferable than a fifty cent word.
