The ability to decide whether group A is different, either better or worse, than group B is an important technique within computational thinking and data science. It is useful in many areas, from medical experiments to sales figures to environmental changes. This Computational Thinking module introduces you to how problems like this can be tackled, first on small datasets, then on a national scale, comparing results to published reports.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language

You'll Learn To

  • Solve a real problem using the computational thinking process
