Investigate the relationships between height and weight

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

G.C.S.E MATHS COURSEWORK

CLEMENTSWOOD HIGH SCHOOL

Introduction

In this coursework I am to investigate the relationships between height and weight. To do this I will be drawing graphs to see if the correlations are weak or strong and if it turns out to be positive or negative correlation.

I will be using pilot study in order to test if the hypothesis is right or wrong. I will then go on to investigate me anomalous result and justify my results.

I will finally investigate the results from the random selection of children from Clementswood High School.

Hypothesis

I am going to investigate the relationships between height and weight. I chose this hypothesis because it seems to be the most interesting to study. My expected result will be clear and will show a strong relationship between height and weight in year groups and gender. To prove my hypothesis I will use tables such as box and whisker diagrams and use various methods to pick my data randomly to show it doesn’t have biased results.

    So, from this I can now predict that 50% of the boys in the whole school will weigh between 0kg and 50kg, and that 57% of the girls in the whole school will be between this range. This implies that there will be a bigger percentage of boys than girls over this range proving that they are heavier than girls.
