We summarize our experience team teaching an undergraduate data mining course and provide recommendations for those interested in developing and teaching their own course. We also compare and contrast our course to other data mining courses. Our course has been team taught four times by a computer science and a mathematics professor. We developed a mathematics and a computer science version of the data mining course that are identical except that the computer science version requires the course project to have an interactive data-driven website as one of the deliverables. We describe how the topics covered in the courses have evolved. We also discuss the learning outcomes we have developed for the courses and methods we use to assess whether students have achieved these learning outcomes.
