Lines, regions and cross overs

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Julian Coxell        Lines, Crossovers And Regions        15/11/07

Aim

During this investigation I intend to find the rules and patterns linking lines crossovers and regions. To do this I will produce a series of tables and graphs and look closely to find visible patterns between different parts of my investigation.

Prediction

I predict that during my investigation I will find patterns that will lead me to be able to make rules about the relationships between lines, cross overs and regions.

Plan

During my investigation I will investigate the sets of lines with the most amount of cross overs from 1 to 6 lines. I will investigate the amount of cross overs the number of enclosed regions, the number of open regions, difference between the number of cross overs and the amount of closed regions, difference between the number of

Conclusion

During my investigation I have found enough formulas to find data for X amount of lines it was a massive success the process I used to find the formula clearly worked and I found it quite easy. If I did this investigation again I would investigate with lines up to 10 for a more in-depth investigation and I would have produced more graphs and tables other than that I think that my investigation was a success.

During my investigation I learnt that graphs and tables are the ultimate way to find otherwise hidden patterns, which with a bit of work will lead you to formulas.

I have also learnt that you should carry out a limited investigation in depth rather than carry out a complicated investigation baisicly.

    Unfortunately, as I do not have any dotted paper that will accommodate 5- and 7-sided shapes, this will not be possible - though I would have liked to do try them out. I have predicted that somewhere in these universal formulas I will have to incorporate the number of sides the shape has.

    Participants were more distracted when a whole face was shown to them. Another study by Tanaka and Farah (1993 Page.M.2003) found that when facial features were shown in context rather than in a scrambled face then participants did better at recognising what feature belonged where when shown from a context concluding that a face is processed as a whole image.
