# Learning Modules

These pre-made, introductory data science lessons are a way for students to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. We start with a question, find an open dataset to answer the question, and then ask students to reflect. Filter learning modules by subject areas or topics of interest, such as:

- Languages
- Mathematics / Mathématiques
- Technology studies / Technologie
- Social studies / Etudes Sociales
- Health
- English language arts
- Science
