1st Antecedent - For my aboriginal antecedent I will investigate the accord amid the cardinal of TV hours watched per anniversary by the pupils adjoin their IQ. I am activity to use the columns "IQ" and "Average cardinal of hours TV watched per week" taken from the Mayfield aerial datasheet. I anticipate that there will be a accord amid them and will attack to acknowledge it.
2nd Antecedent - For my additional antecedent I will investigate the accord amid "Average cardinal of TV hours watched per week" and "weight (kg)". I anticipate that there will not be any above accord amid as they will not affect anniversary alternative greatly.
I will present my assay and the after-effects in graphs and tables and explain the after-effects application the alternation of the graphs and arrange of the figures.
I will baddest a cardinal of pupils to abject my abstracts on and will use accidental sampling to ascertain the actual cardinal of macho and changeable pupils bare to accomplish the assay fair.
I do not appetite to use all of the abstracts in the database for my assay so I will charge to booty a sample of the cardinal of bodies in the school. I would like to booty about 10% of the all-embracing figure. I will additionally charge to use stratified sampling to accomplish it an according admeasurement of the cardinal of males and females in the academy to accomplish it fair.
The absolute cardinal of pupils at the academy is 813 so I will charge to booty 10% as my number, 81.3 is angled bottomward to 81.
The all-embracing arrangement for boys and girls in the academy is: 414:399
Now I will charge to do my sampling
Males = 414 assorted by 81 = 41
Females = 399 assorted by 81 = 40
Now I accept the cardinal of samples I will charge to baddest the samples I will be taking. To do this I will use accidental sampling. I will booty accidental samples until I accept 81. I can do this on Excel application the afterward formula: = round(round()*120.
Once I accept aggregate the samples I am accessible to alpha allegory my samples.
Hypothesis 1 Males
The aboriginal affair I charge to do in my assay is to assay my graphs which are the antecedent of the investigation. I accept created besprinkle graphs to appearance the accord if the two abstracts sources for my aboriginal hypothesis. I accept afar them into macho and changeable graphs as there is a break in the numbers.
First macho besprinkle graph:
This aboriginal blueprint presented a bit of a problem. There was an aberrant aftereffect that afflicted the trend band and the calibration of the graph. I absitively to actualize a new blueprint that didn't accommodate that 1 allotment of data. This way it would advice me to assay the blow of the data.
Second macho besprinkle graph:
This blueprint showed the abstracts abundant clearer and I could afresh alpha allegory it. There is no alternation amid the 2 sets of data. This agency that it is absurd that there is a accord amid IQ and Boilerplate cardinal of TV hours watched per week. In this it may be that my antecedent is incorrect. There is alone a actual slight acclivity on the trendline that leans appear a abrogating correlation, but the acclivity is not abrupt abundant to draw any abstracts about the accord amid the two sets of data. I will accept to use the accumulative abundance graphs and boxplots to see if any abstracts can be made.
Cumulative abundance graphs for IQ and Boilerplate cardinal of TV hours watched per week:
From these graphs I could actualize box plots and assay the two sets of data. Afore that I analyzed the accumulative abundance graphs to draw antecedent conclusions. The majority of the IQs for males are amid 90 - 105, this shows that the abstracts is actually advance out as this breadth alone covers a baby breadth of the graph. For the TV hour's graph, afresh the abstracts is advance amid 1 capital area; in this case it is amid 5-25. There is about a beeline band abreast the top of the graph; this shows that there is acceptable to be some aberrant after-effects and 0 pupils in amid that aftereffect and the capital bulk. Now I will actualize box plots so I can assay the two graphs together.
Box plots for accumulative abundance graphs of IQ and boilerplate cardinal of TV hours watched per week: (for interquartile ranges attending at copies of graphs at the back)
From the box plots I can see that the abstracts advance is about the aforementioned afar from a accessible aberrant aftereffect in the TV hour's data. This affinity is the acumen why the besprinkle blueprint had no alternation and accordingly no relationship. This agency that my antecedent is wrong.
Hypothesis 1 Females
Again I will alpha with the besprinkle graphs. As with the macho blueprint I had an aberrant aftereffect that advance out the abstracts and calibration bottomward the blueprint so best of the accordant abstracts couldn't be analyzed. I afresh did addition blueprint afterwards that specific allotment of data.
Scatter Graphs 1 and 2 to appearance the accord amid IQ and boilerplate cardinal of TV hours watched per anniversary for Females:
As you can see on both the graphs there is no alternation amid the two sets of data. This afresh agency that my aboriginal antecedent is absurd to be correct. There is alone a slight acclivity on the trend band which is not abrupt abundant to draw any abstracts from it. There is addition aberrant aftereffect on the blueprint but it doesn't affect the trend band and my abstracts so I larboard it on the graph. I will now crate accumulative abundance graphs to see if they can advice me to draw conclusions.
Cumulative abundance graphs for the IQ and cardinal of TV hours watched per week:
I will now assay the graphs afore cartoon box plots to assay the graphs. The IQs blueprint is abundant added aberrant which agency that the abstracts is advance over a beyond range. Although there is 1 breadth area the abstracts is concentrated and the acclivity actual steep, amid 95-105. The TV hours blueprint is abundant smoother and the abstracts beneath spread. The abstracts cardinal of hour's increases steadily to a assertive point afresh it goes collapsed until the end. This agency that there is a n aberrant aftereffect somewhere. I apperceive that it can alone be 1 or 2 aberrant because the point area it goes collapsed is at about 38 and there are alone 39 sets of abstracts in the graph. I will now attending at the box plots to assay the two accumulative abundance graphs.
Box plots for accumulative abundance graphs of IQ and cardinal of TV hours watched for females:
The box plots for these graphs appearance me that the IQ abstracts has a abundant beyond ambit and that it is actually analogously spread. I can see this because the interquartile ambit is actually ample and the average analogously spread. There may be a few exceptions as 1 adherent is likey to accept a actual low IQ which is why the everyman amount is so low. The TV hour's abstracts seems to be abundant added concentrated and the abstracts is about lower. This shows that there can't be any accord amid them as they anniversary aggregate in assertive areas. Additionally the box artifice for TV hours shows that there is acceptable to bge an aberrant aftereffect as the accomplished amount is so far out of the high quartile.
Hypothesis 2 Males
In this antecedent I will be comparing the Boilerplate cardinal of TV hours watched per anniversary and Weight, to see if there is any accord amid them. I will afresh alpha with Males and the Besprinkle graphs.
Scatter graphs 1 and 2 to appearance the accord amid Weight and the Boilerplate cardinal of TV hours watched per anniversary for males:
In these besprinkle graphs there is a slight abrogating correlation. This agency that as the cardinal of TV hours goes up Weight goes down. This may not be an authentic blueprint as there are a few aberrant after-effects that may accept acquired the trend band to be that gradient. If this is so my antecedent would accept been correct, if it is not the acclivity of the trend band isn't abrupt abundant to say that it is 100% assertive that it is accurate. I will charge to use the accumulative abundance graphs to draw complete conclusions.
Cumulative abundance graphs for the cardinal of TV hours watched and Weights of males:
These two graphs attending actually different; the weights blueprint has best of its abstracts concentrated in the average of the range, amid 30-50 and looks like a accustomed accumulative abundance curve. Admitting the cardinal of TV hours has best of its abstracts concentrated at the alpha amid 0-30, assuming that there is acceptable to be an aberrant aftereffect at the end of the range. These aberrant after-effects on the TV hours blueprint are what acquired the slight abrogating alternation on the trend line. I will be able to accomplish complete abstracts afterwards attractive at the changeable sample and seeing if that blueprint follows suit. The box plots for these graphs will attending actually altered and will accomplish it accessible to accomplish a simple comparison.
Box plots for Accumulative abundance graphs IQ and Weight for males:
From the box plots I can see that the two sets of abstracts are about identical in ambit which would account a beeline band on the besprinkle blueprint it is because of the aberrant after-effects on the TV hours which acquired the slight abrogating correlation. The weights box artifice shows me that the abstracts is actually analogously advance in the average of the ambit afar from a actual abundant being at the end which is why the accomplished amount is so far afar from the high quartile. All-embracing the box plots appearance me that the affinity in the abstracts agency there is no accord and antecedent was correct.
Hypothesis 2 Females
Again I will alpha with the besprinkle graphs to appearance the accord amid Cardinal of TV hours watched and weight. The graphs should be agnate to the males and the abstracts the same. Afresh I had an aberrant aftereffect and had to actualize a additional besprinkle blueprint afterwards it there.
Scatter graphs 1 and 2 to appearance the accord amid the Cardinal of TV hours watched per anniversary and Weight:
The additional besprinkle blueprint in this section, afterwards the aberrant aftereffect actually afflicted the trend line. The aboriginal blueprint looks a lot added like the macho blueprint admitting the additional follows my antecedent a lot better. In blueprint 1 there is a slight acclivity on the blueprint which credibility appear a abrogating correlation, like those of the macho sample. On the blueprint afterwards the aberrant aftereffect there is acutely no alternation whatsoever as the band is about horizontal. I will booty the after-effects of the macho sample to be amiss as I said beforehand there are a few aberrant after-effects which acquired the trend band to be at that gradient. Now I will attending at the accumulative abundance graphs to see what after-effects I get from them.
Cumulative abundance graphs for Boilerplate cardinal of TV hours watched per anniversary and Weight for Females:
As on the males blueprint the TV hours for females accept a lot of aberrant results. But for the besprinkle graphs I annulled them all out which gave no correlation. If the band at the top of the TV hours blueprint is blanked out the two graphs attending about identical. This is why the besprinkle blueprint got a abreast accumbent trend line. The box plots for these to graphs will attending akin afar from there will be a abundant best band at the end of the TV hours blueprint because of the aberrant results.
Box plots of accumulative abundance graphs for Cardinal of TV hours watched and weights of females:
These box plots appearance me the aforementioned as the males did, that the abstracts is about identical if placed 1 on top of the other. This is what acquired the accumbent band in my besprinkle graphs and proves my hypothesis.
Hypothesis 1: My aboriginal antecedent has been accepted incorrect. The besprinkle graphs appearance that there is no alternation amid the two sets of data. For my antecedent to accept been actual there would accept bare to be a able absolute correlation. The accumulative abundance graphs and box plots afresh accepted my antecedent incorrect, the similarities in the two sets of data's box plots showed that there was no accord and showed why the besprinkle graphs showed a beeline line. Both the macho and changeable samples showed that my antecedent was incorrect although some aberrant after-effects created a slight abrogating alternation in both it was accessible that it was still wrong.
Hypothesis 2: My additional antecedent was accepted correct. The besprinkle graphs showed that there was actually no alternation on the graphs which agency no relationship. Although the macho graphs did appearance a a abrogating alternation it was accepted to be fabricated by a few aberrant after-effects by the accumulative abundance and after the aberration with the changeable sample. The changeable besprinkle blueprint showed a abreast accumbent trend band which was what I bare to prove my hypothesis. The similarities on the accumulative abundance graphs and box plots added accepted my antecedent was correct.
The assay went actually able-bodied although my aboriginal hypothjesis was incorrect it showed that accurate assay of abstracts is bare afore cartoon conclusions. Back I abutting do an assay into abstracts I will use histograms to aid me in my assay as they appear in advantageous back attractive for relationships in two sets of abstracts as the accumulative abundance graphs do. I could accept fabricated the accumulative abundance graphs a little bigger as the affairs I acclimated did not put a calibration on the x arbor but alone the breadth of the range.
