# Hypothesis My hypothesis is that the taller a person is the heavier they will be.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Warren Roffey

Mayfield High School Statistics Coursework

Introduction

The aim of my investigation is to find if there is relationship between the pupils height and weight. Does height affect a person’s weight?

Hypothesis

My hypothesis is that the taller a person is the heavier they will be.

My plan

First of all I will read the sheet of instructions, and then I will sort the data in ascending order for each key stage, then I will delete the bad data and the data I don’t need.

I have made the graphs. (Look below)

I have done my conclusion. (Look below)

Conclusion

Most of the graphs show a positive correlation between height and weight. They support my hypothesis. The heavier a person the taller they are. Some results are anomalies because some people may be overweight. I could have made the investigation better by using more similar people. Eg. Look the same.

The most commonly used ones are random and stratified. In order to collect my data I used a stratified sample. Stratified sampling involves dividing the population (in this case the number of students) into groups called strata. From each stratum (plural) you can choose a random or systematic sample so that the sample size is proportional to the size of the groups in the population as a whole.
