Using Data
We are inundated with information — about our health, our leisure activities, sports and so much more. Information is just information. It is our responsibility to process that information and to use it wisely. That is one of the reasons we study data analysis. We need to not only evaluate this information, but also to base personal decisions on evidence (data). We also need to see the dangers of acting on decisions that are not supported by the evidence. The question then becomes, “How do we get that evidence?” Of course, the answer is by analyzing the data that we are using to make those decisions. This module shows us how race car drivers use data to help them win races.
