# Analyse how student's marks in a maths test react with or without music being played.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Maths Coursework (Music and work) Introduction This investigation is to analyse how student's marks in a maths test react with or without music being played. Hypothesis My hypothesis is: 1. For my hypotheses I think when music is played the students will perform badly but when music is not played pupils will perform better. I have now chosen my hypothesis. I have chosen these because I think these are relevant to the test when music is played or is not. Depending on the students interest in music the hypothesis might differ so if a student likes the music being played then they might perform better. If the student dislikes the music being played then they might perform not so well or worse. Action Plan Music will be played while students are taking the tests, the tests will be mental arithmetic. The tests will be conducted in 8 different AS maths groups. There are 2 statistics groups 2 mechanics groups 2 decision groups and 2 further maths groups. 1 of the groups from each different maths group will take the test with music played and the other will do the test without. This no means we will get a fair result from each of the two groups. The investigation will be made fair by having the same conditions in each room. ...read more.

of 30 indicating that the music helped the students in achieving a better mark, so this show my hypothesis is wrong because students found that music caused them to get better marks. Graph 3&4 I have studied the first two graphs and am not convinced that my hypothesis are true, I am now going to draw up two Cumulative frequency graphs display the median, upper quartile and the lower quartile of both the With music and the Without music data. With Music Without Music Graph 5 Box Plot I have completed analysing and comparing the cumulative frequency graphs and am more confident that my hypothesis is correct. But just to confirm I am going to draw the last graph a Box plot graph this graph will display clearer the median, upper quartile and the lower quartile of both the Tabloid and the Broadsheet data. From this diagram I have noticed that the Broadsheet box is further over on the side of the higher number of letters per word and the Tabloid box is further over on the side of the lower number of letters per word. Now this shows me that the Interquartile range is higher for the Broadsheet than the Tabloid making the hypothesis true. The Broadsheet is a harder newspaper to read. ...read more.
