GCSE Height and Weight of Pupils and other Mayfield High School investigations

The first 200 words of this essay...

Introduction

Mayfield School is a secondary school of 1183 pupils aged 11-16 years of age. For my data handling coursework I have got to investigate a line of enquiry from the pupils' data. Some of the options include; relationship between IQ and Key Stage 3 results, comparing hair colour and eye colour, but I have chosen to investigate the relationship between height and weight. One of the main reasons being that this line of enquiry means that my data will be numerical, allowing me to produce a more detailed analysis rather than eye or hair colour where I would be quite limited as to what I can do.

If I were to make an original prediction of my results, my hypothesis would be;

"The taller the pupil, the heavier they will weigh."

In this project I will consider the link between height and weight and will eventually be able to state whether my original hypothesis is in fact correct. Other factors I am going to consider when performing this investigation, is the effect of age and gender in my results and I will make further hypothesize when I reach that stage in my project.
