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.

    At the other end of the curve there are a number of girls with higher IQs than the highest scoring boy. This would seem to support my hypothesis that girls have a higher IQ than boys and this is further supported by the median for the girls' data being 106 and the boys being lower at 103.5.

  2. DATA HANDLING COURSEWORK

    If a boy weighed 80kg, he will be 1.8635m tall. So, from these two examples, I can say that the more the boy weighs the taller he will be. I will now analyse the second graph which is for the girls.

    This could be shown much evidently by using the box and whiskers diagram. 2.2 Box and whisker diagram The box and whisker diagram will be used to stress the quartiles and also to show its (shape) distribution whether it has a symmetrical distribution, negative skew or positive skew.

    I can see the consistencies and similarities of the sample to that of the original data in the preliminary analysis, and with these results I am fairly confidant that this sample is proportional and un bias. I am now ready to use this sample in my hypothesizes.
