Quantitative Skills > Tools and Datasets > DataSheets


Originally developed for the NSDL Using Data in the Classroom portal, DataSheets concisely describe particular scientific data sets in a way that is useful to educators interested in teaching with the data. We've made the geoscience subset of DataSheets available here for you. To see the full interdisciplinary set, check out the Using Data site.
