So far, you have analyzed data from a variety of sources to solve realistic problems from science, engineering, and business. Now it’s your turn to choose and analyze a real-world problem. This is good practice for how you will use Python for the remainder of your career. You are highly encouraged to work with a partner or group of two others on this project!

  • Proposal
    • Due: Thursday 02/17 at 11:59 pm
    • Synopsis Come up with research questions and commit to using a particular dataset(s). Describe motivation and any background material, describe the dataset, describe your analysis methodology or the algorithm you will use. This requires submitting a work plan that outlines how you will work on the project for the remainder of the quarter.
  • Deliverables - Report/Code
    • Due: Tuesday 03/15 at 11:59 pm
    • Synopsis The main project submission where you implement the code for your project and write up a report. You will also need to meet with your TA mentor before submitting this part to discuss the feedback on the previous part.
  • Deliverables - Video
    • Due: Wednesday 03/16 at 11:59 pm
    • Synopsis Make a short video presentation to share your results to a broader audience. Videos will be posted on a gallery website for others in the class to view.
  • Peer Feedback
    • Due: Friday 03/18 at 11:59 pm
    • Synopsis Watch over some other groups' projects and provide feedback on their project!

For some example reports and slides, please refer to our past project gallery.

This project is structured a lot like the project in CSE 160 with some specific requirements changed. You may NOT submit the same project that you used in CSE 160 for this class. You may use the same dataset, but we would expect that you have a much more novel and interesting set of research questions if you use the same dataset as you did in a previous quarter.

Project Submission

We will use Gradescope and DevPost to submit the various parts of the project since it does a really good job with group projects. We will make Gradescope accounts for everyone and you will receive an email when your account is created. For each part, only one group member should submit on Gradescope. You should use the Group Members functionality to add the appropriate partner(s) if you have them. If you want to learn about how to add Group Members on Gradescope, please see instructions here.

More information will be announced with the project parts.
