Introduction

Statistics Coursework

Hypothesis

• The position of a basketball player will affect how many points per game they get
• The height of a basketball player will effect the position they play
• In general the height of a basketball player effects how many points they get per game

##### Evidence from my data suggests 42% of guards height were between 190 and 200 cm. 68% of forwards height were between 200 and 210 cm. 62% of centres height were between 210 and 220 cm. These conclusions are based on a sample of only 50 players. I could extend the sample or repeat the whole exercise to confirm my results.

My Prediction I think that as the Key Stage 2 results will increase the same thing will happen to the IQ of the student. I also believe that there will be a positive correlation between the two - as both sets of information are supposed to be measures of a person's intelligence.

Also, I believe that I have found an anomalous result, which I have labelled. Plan 2 Now that I have discovered that my first hypothesis is true, and that generally the taller a person is the more that they are likely to weight, I can investigate a new hypothesis relating to the results that I have found.

To work out the median I will arrange the measurements in order of size and then find the middle measurement. If there are two middle numbers I would need to add them up and divide by 2. I will find the median for each gender separately for each year.
