Mathematical analysis of FCIT website hits

“Mathematics is language of nature and everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. When you graph the numbers of any system patterns emerge.”(π,1998) This project seeks to discover patters through which is possible to determine how many hits this particular site FCIT will receive in the future and how many it has in the past. Through data collection it is possible to create a graph and from that retrieve a function. It is suggested to break the graph in different parts to find multiple, and probably simpler, functions. Once all the functions of each part of the graph are found we simply add them together to create the function that best describes the graph. If this is done for different days and months a function will form, thanks to which we can predict with a certain percentage of error the number of future hits the site will receive. This project aims at finding the pattern behind the hits of the FCIT (Florida Center for Instructional Technology) located at USF.
