Data Science in a Box is a repository for open-source course materials for a semester-long, college-level, introductory data science course that teaches R.


Data Science in a Box contains the materials required to teach (or learn from) a semester-long, college-level, introductory data science course that teaches R, all of which are freely-available and open-source. The materials include course slide decks, lecture and live coding videos, homework assignments, guided labs, sample exams, a final project assignment, as well as resources for instructors such as pedagogical tips, information on computing infrastructure, technology stack, and course logistics.

The project also features an accompanying R package, dsbox, which contains datasets used in the course as well as interactive tutorials built with learnr.
