In this study, topological data analysis techniques were used to analyze a discrete dataset. The dataset is the results of a national study done on college calculus students in the United States. The goal of the study was to create and implement techniques to analyze the data by considering the persistent homologies up to the second dimension. The resulting persistence diagrams were then interpreted by considering the context of the data analyzed, and in some cases, these results were compared to the findings in the report on the calculus study.
