An Investigation Into Weight, Height and IQ of Students At Mayfield High School

From the data I have been given I aim to prove two things

  1. The taller the person the heavier they are – I think this because when a person is taller they generally have a larger mass and with the analysis of the data I will hopefully be able to see Which students are over or under weight
  2. That girls generally have a higher IQ than boys

To start with I shall have to take a sample of the data of years 7, 9 and 11. I shall do this because there is too much data, so I shall take a sample to make the figures more manageable, it shall be a random sample to make sure that it is an unbiased.

Conclusion

There is a possibility that it could be used to see whether certain people or a mass of people will get good grades at SAT’s or GCSE, because the IQ of a person is supposed to represent the intelligence of a person.

This is however could become inaccurate as a person could have a high IQ but still have other problems learning other things and so not do as well as predicted.

So overall this could possibly produce a rough guide as to how well someone will do in his or her exams

I could have used the information on the graph to see whether people are over or under the average weight. I would have to create separate graphs however for males and females as their weights vary in different ways so this could become difficult.
