Exploring a Standard Algorithmic Problem from a Model and Data Science Perspective.

This session will explore how a standard algorithmic problem can be approached from a conceptual modeling and data science perspective and lead to natural lines of inquiry for student exploration. While only a specific task will be explored, the session learnings can be generalized and applied to a variety of classes of problems, contexts, and concepts.
