1. Abstract:

The report investigated the weight, height, arm span and shoe size of 20 males and females included their records, discussion whether they are overweight or underweight, and final conclusion about the result. The final result after discussion is gender does have affect on height, weight, arm span and shoe size.

1. Introduction:

The science report investigate the body mass (height, weight, arm span and shoe size) to understand relationship between weight, height and arm span. Body mass data of 20 people of both genders in the same age range from 19 to 23 will be used in the report. I predict some of the people will be overweight, underweight and balance; arm span will be approximately equal to height and height is relating to weight. My hypothese is gender will have affected on body mass of height, weight, arm span and shoe size.

1. Investigation of shoe size and height from Mayfield high school database.

averages, I feel there are a lot of observations for me to make. I can now analyse my results. I feel my investigation successfully proved that girls are not as tall as boys. The height mean for girls is 160.5cm whereas for boys it is 167.2cm.

a very fast reaction time, when really they could have a slow one. E.g. If the ruler was being held 8cm above one persons hand, the ruler could fall 10cm, but they catch it at 2cm, giving them a score of 2.

The stratisfied sample amount of data I am going to use is 40. I then need to divide 40 by 180 which equals 0.2* (40/180 = 0.2*). The 0.2* is then converted into a percentage which is 22.2%. I now have to work out what 22.2% of 100 males and 80 females and then round it.

1. Statistics - Heights and Weight

All the valid and correct data was numbered. Due to choosing random sampling I needed to randomly select the data which consisted of working out a simple calculation on the calculator using the 'Random' function. This would allow the calculator to choose a random number between the selected amounts which in this case was 25.

6 Having collected all the correct data, I will then produce two separate scatter graphs displaying the data of both males and females 7 After doing this, I will then find the standard deviation for all my data using the function (STCEVP (range)); in order to see how far away the data is from the mean.
