Presenting the project to the Royal Society
In January, I travelled to London to present to the Royal Society's Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (RS ACME). I talked to them about the new NPA qualification in Data Science. This was of particular interest to schools and organisations involved in teaching A-Level Maths which involved an aspect of studying a dataset and then answering questions on it in the exam. The assessment approach in Scotland seems more flexible for a practical task such as interrogating a dataset.
