<p>It was after data.</p>
<p>The group of four, which included students and postdoctoral researchers, fanned out along the parade route. The floats rolled from near the intersection of Jefferson, Surrey and Simcoe streets, and ended near Cajun Field. The researchers walked along the entire 4-mile route.</p></div></div></div><div class="sharethis-buttons"><div class="sharethis-wrapper"><span st_url="http://math.louisiana.edu/news-events/news/20170423/math-students-estimate-attendance-kings-parade" st_title="Math students estimate attendance at King's parade" class="st_facebook"></span>
