In this dynamic data science activity, students use data to build binary trees for decision-making and prediction. Prediction trees are the first steps towards linear regression, which plays an important role in machine learning for future data scientists. Students begin by manually putting “training data” through an algorithm. They can then automate the process to test their ability to predict which alien creatures are sick and which are healthy. Students can “level up” to try more difficult scenarios.
