Berkeley Undergrad Data Science Course and Textbook

The University of California at Berkeley has started The Berkeley Data Science Education Program. The goal is to build a data science education program throughout the next several years by engaging faculty and students from across the campus. The introductory data science course is targeting freshman and it is taught from a very applicable and interactive environment. The course videos, slides, labs, and notes are freely available for others to use. The course heavily uses Jupyter. Also, the course textbook is online at Computational and Inferential Thinking: The Foundations of Data Science.
