*STAT/COMP 212 is a new intermediate data science course that will be developed. It will emphasize advanced data wrangling and manipulation, writing functions, and working with data in databases (including SQL). It may use a combination of R and Python and will definitely involve at least one project working with messy data. This course will give students practice in the constant feedback loop of asking questions of the data, manipulating the data to help answer the question, and then returning to more questions.
