Introduction

I am going to investigate the height and weight of males and females from the whole of Mayfield School, which will show a pattern, this pattern being that as a pupils height increases so does their weight.

I have collected the height, weight and gender of pupils from secondary data that was provided from the Internet. I have been restricted to these resources due to the time restrictions. The data

I know this data is a fair sample because it was chosen by Random using the Rnd button on the calculator.

I will now make a more useful representation of the data for my first line of enquiry.

  2. Conduct an investigation comparing height and weight from pupils in Mayfield School.

    I now hypothesise that separating boys and girls will produce stronger correlation between height and weight. (Please refer to the scatter graphs on page 10). The evidence supports my hypothesis that there will be stronger correlation between height and weight if boys and girls are considered separately.

  1. Statistics Mayfield High

    A value -1 will show that the graph has a strong negative correlation and a value of 0 shows it has no correlation. As it is easy to create on the computer; I will also work out the SD. I will be using Microsoft Excel to create the graphs and work out any calculations.

  2. Study how balls bounce, specifically focusing on how drop height affects the rebound height. ...

    This means that there is the same amount of energy going into the elastomers every time so the same amount of energy comes back out so the ball no matter how much higher the ball is dropped from it not rebound any higher.

  1. For this investigation I have four hypotheses, which are: 1) ...

    I have found out the amount of data I am going to use from each population, now I need to work out which data I am going to use. To do this I will need to use a calculator to produce random numbers, which I will use to pick out students who have the same reference number.
