hey i am currently doing my maths c/w and my hypothesis is:
the older you are the better you are at estimating time

i have told a few if my friends to count to 10 in their head and when they reached 10 they would stop and on my stop watch i would tell them how close they were.

what do you mean by research? haven't you done that when you asked your friends?

with the graphs you can make simply ones like bar chart where one axes is the time (y)and the other number of people.

Hi,

I'm doing stats as part of my A level Psychology, I recommend that you construct a line graph and plot the points of time and age (obviously using Excel!) then you can comment on the correllation between the two variables.

hope this helps!

If its for maths you could also calculate the correlation using spearmans rank, or the product moment correlation coeffciant
