In the second part of the first project you should use an association rule mining algorithm to extract important association rules present in the dataset and select a relatively small set of those association rules and use them for classification of the data items. Several studies have shown that this method might yield superior results compared to many of the traditional classification techniques. Check the resources section for related material.

In question 6 of the first homework assignment, you are asked to describe a potential problem of a discretization function D_c. The question has put a restriction on the capabilities of this function, and naturally any shortcomings of D_c concerning this problem should be a result of that restriction. That is you cannot assume any restrictions on the capabilities of D_c beyond those that have been specified in the question.
The restriction is that D_c can accept only _one_ numerical attribute as its input. Still in other words, if a dataset has more than one numerical attribute and they are to be discretized using D_c then the only way to apply D_c would be to use it for each of the numerical attributes separately.
