Mayfield High School Project.
For my coursework, I will be exploring three hypotheses, and if time allows, another three will be studied. The first three that I will try to prove true or false are;
* Taller people are heavier
* Boys are taller than girls
* Boys are heavier than girls.
The two others that will be explored if I have the chance are;
* Older boys and girls are taller than younger ones
* Older boys and girls are heavier than younger ones.
The two extra hypotheses are related the second and third hypotheses I am definitely doing. I will expand the second and third to see if age is a factor.
To start proving my theories correct or wrong, I will need heights and weights of children from a school. I will be using the booklet provided which contains data of 1183 pupils at Mayfield High School. I will need 100 sets of data, approximately 50 boys and 50 girls. We were told that 100 would provide sufficient information to display on graphs and histograms, or 20% of the whole amount
