Introduction

Mayfield Statistics Coursework

Title: Mayfield High School Statistics Coursework

Aim: To find the relationship between certain factors of children from Yr 7-11. These factors include height, weight, gender and age.

Hypothesis: I think that as the children grow they will increase in height and weight. Therefore there should be a correlation between the two factors. It is common knowledge that girls grow faster than boys. Also, boys are going to grow heavier than girls because they eat a lot more in general; they will eventually grow taller than the girls too.

Introduction:

Mayfield is a fictitious high school but the data presented is based on a real school. The total number of the students in the school is 1200. 18 factors of information have been collected from the students which means, on a whole there are 21600 datum points. This is obviously too much data to use effectively so I took a sample of 100 from the school.

Girls are subjected to discipline and restraint in the home and are therefore better prepared for the traditional environment of the school (Drayton 1995, Figueroa 1996).
