The widespread and growing use of analytics has highlighted the need for more data savvy students. One recently identified aspect of data literacy is the awareness of ambiguity in data. This paper outlines a method and initial results for raising awareness of data ambiguity in a short, one lesson, active learning format suitable for business or computer science courses. The paper also includes a summary of prior research on ambiguity, data literacy taxonomies, implications, and suggestions for further research.
