    hamish( my names not really hamish by the way!!)

    somebody pleeasse help us.our coursework woz sposed 2 b in a month ago and we havnt started!! what r u sposed to include 2 get highest mark and where do u get the info from??!! wb QUICKLY its life or death for us!! our teacher is as useful as a blind guide dog.

    I haven't started either, and don't know what to do, but our school has been kind enough to put the info on the school network, i will upload it to my website and give you access to the data, you can find what you need here, http://timksfgsite.250free.com/GCSE_...t_Mayfield.xls you need microsoft Excel to open this, now can someone give me info on what to do for this, e-mail me at [email protected] thanx.

    Short list:
    Specify your problem ; height v weight, IQ v ave. hrs of tv
    Make Hypothesis (What you think is true)
    Plan what data you need and what you will do with it.
    Collect data: random sample (best stratified)
    Summarise your sample data (averages, cumulative frequency, boxplot)
    Look for relationships: scatter graphs, correlation, line of best fit
    conclusion: refer to your hypothesis, and whether your graphs support this.
    Evaluate: plan, sampling, any limitations to sample, how you can extend (ie do boys and girls separately, compare to another year)

    If you have time: do the extension to improve your marks.
    Hope this helps

    Hi i'm Chris, im doing this mayfield high school data handling but i don't teally know what to do next.

    My hypothesis are:
    compare the height and weight of pupils in ks3 and ks4.
    is the increase in the amount of television watched by pupils in year 11 reflected by their size.

    So far I have done:
    cumulative frequency for height abd weights of pupils in ks3 and ks4.
    freaquency polygon for heights and weights of pupils in ks3 and ks4.

    Please help me im really stuck and this has to be in next week.
    What do I do next.
    Could you send me step by step plan plzzz

    If you have any helpful info plzz e-mail me: [email protected]

    Hello I'm in year 10 doing this course work. I am finding it a bit tedious rather than hard. Height and weight is the best thing to follow. Below I have listed the things you MUST include to get the grade.

    Grade C
    Use continuous data, not something like hair colour or ks2 results.
    Frequency Polygon
    Frequency Diagram
    Histogram (Not bar chart)
    Averages (Mode,Mean,Median and range)
    Interquartile Range (for instance [1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8] 6 - 3 = 3)
    Box Plot
    Scatter Diagram
    Explain clearly why you have used each method

    Grade A
    Same as grade C but also :
    An Advanced histogram
    Use stratified sampling

    Hope this helps

    dont worry i can help. log on to www.mathscw.co.uk/mayfieldhigh my new site will show you what to do. iv broken it down so it is a piece of piss to do. trust me i can def help you

    i am doin this i have
    collected height and weignt data
    from all years to get the right amout for this i stratisfied it
    for eg i want 40 pieces of data so to find out how many yr 7s i do 282/1183 x 40 =9.5 so i will choose 9 yr 7s and i do this for each year
