How many heel touch do you think people could do in 30 seconds?Well my class did a data analysis project and my group did how many heel touches you could do in 30 seconds.
Our inquiry question:
How many heel touches you could do in 30 seconds?
We needed a timer and luckily someone in our group had a timer on there watch so it work perfectly.
The procedure was to touch your heel well you stood up. It had to be alternating heel touches and you couldn’t bend over and touch your heel you had to be standing strait up.
You need to be standing when you were doing the heel touches. You needed to alternate each time you touched your heel.
I predicted that people would get between 40-90 heel touches in 30 seconds.
This is the data we got for our experiment. The number that we got are 36,47,50,53,56,59,62,67,67,67,67,69,71,72,73,85.
analysis of data:
There where no outliers. So I did included them. because their are non so we include them. The Mean is 62 and I know that because you add up all you’re numbers then divide it by how ever many number is in the data set. the equation is 1001÷16=62. The mode is 67. The mode is the number that ocures the most so look and see the number that is in the data set most. the median is 67 and I got that because I look to see what the middle number is. I look in the middle and saw that it was the middle. The range it 49 and I got that because I get the highest and I subtract the lowest number to the highest number. and that was 36−85. I think that the mean is the most important because its the average.
I think that I did pretty good for my prediction. Because I predicated that my class mates would get between 40-90. The thing my class got was 36-85. I think that tells the people in our class are pretty good at heel touches.
I think we could extend it maybe you could be able to bend over and then I think it would be easier to do and people would get more if you could bend over.
That was are project and I hope you have a GREAT day!
