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.
