Abstract

This talk will share the details of an intriguing and appealing in-class project for students in an introductory Data Analytics class for advanced mathematics majors. The project originated with a joke from a popular comedian about whether “La Quinta” is Spanish for “Next to Denny’s” and developed into an investigation of that quip. In this project, students learn to acquire the appropriate geospatial data, learn some new skills in Excel, RStudio or other data analysis software, experience quite a bit of problem-solving, and work hard to communicate their results.
