Hypothesis:

As their age increases both girls and boys will grow in height and weight, but overall in each year the boys will always be taller.

Plan:

  1. I will collect the data and take systematic samples.
  2. I will draw frequency polygons to compare distributions

Conclusion

I will work out all the averages for both gendersI will draw stem and leaf diagrams for both genders, so I can do the averagesI will draw cumulative frequency diagrams because I will then be able to find the median, the quartiles and the IQRI will do box plots for both genders, so I can compare distributionsI will analyse my data.I will write my conclusion, which will say if I proved my hypothesis correct or incorrect.
