There is a large and growing body of literature arguing that working with data is a key modern skill.  
Data literacy includes the ability to read, work with, analyze and argue with data as part of a larger inquiry process. 

Come and learn about DataBasic, a suite of easy-to-use web tools for beginners that introduce concepts of working with text as data for analysis. 
These simple tools make it easy to work with data in fun ways, so you can learn how to find great stories to tell. 
WordCounter analyzes your text and tells you the most common words and phrases. 
SameDiff compares two or more text files and tells you how similar or different they are.

They are beautiful, simple, easy and intuitive to use, and are great for beginners.  Have no fear there will be no math here
