Today, the third day of Ramp-Up Week, was a lot of fun because we got to pay around with Arduino and Tableau. We also learned about the proper ways to create a Press release. We also delved deeper into ShareLateX and Mendeley learned more about their functions.
Press Release | Arduino | VIdeo:
One of our homework assignments is to develop a device using Arduino ot solve an existing problem and to create a press release and video to go a long with it. I worked with Gerald Pienda and Hanifa Hotelwala we created a device that solves procrastination. Click here to see the press release.
Tableau: We were asked to use Tableau to analyze the data collected by Haley since February of 2018. The data included her heart rate, step count, and total calories burned on each day between February 14th and May 21. I focused on the data collected in the month of may. Fig 1. below shows the total amount of steps Haley took on each of the days in May. Fig 2. below shows her heart rate on each of the days in May.
As you can see a high daily step count does not mean a higher heart rate; nor does a low step count equal a lower step-count. In fact, on the day that Haley had the lower step count, she had the highest heart rate. While Haley’s step-count varied greatly on a daily basis, her heart rate remained between 65 and 75. As you can see in Figure 1., the only noticeable trend was the increase in steps each Friday during May. One noticeable outlier is the over 18k steps on May 5th seen in Figure 1.

Can you use chopsticks?
