Maths Handling Data Coursework

Hypothesis

My hypothesis is: Is intelligence related to exam results?  To do this I can investigate the relationship between IQ and Key Stage 2 results.

 There should be positive correlation in the graph as above average Key Stage 2 results suggest a student should have a high IQ.

  I can extend this investigation by see if there is a relationship between Sex and IQ/KS2 results.

Plan

 To do my investigation I will need to collect the IQ and exam results from the Mayfield school data. I will use a sample size of 60, because it is a large enough number for a decent investigation, but not too large that I have too many people to work with. It will be fair as I will use 30 boys and 30 girls, and I am using a stratified sample so I can get the right number of people from each year and my sample is not biased.

This table shows how my stratified sample worked and how many people I am going to take from each year.

 I am going to take my sample, and then I am going to first look at the IQ. I will draw a histogram as the data is continuous. This will help me to find out the median. I will also find out the mean, the modal class interval, and the inter-quartile range.

    * As the difference between the Spearman's Number of the male and female data is not huge, I strongly believe that if a larger sample size was used, then trends supporting my first sub-hypothesis would be observed. If the difference was significant, then I would accept this sub-hypothesis to be incorrect.
