## Year 8 Statistics Report 2012-2013

Introduction: The current unit in math is statistics. This unit comes with a project. Every student in year eight has to choose a topic in which they can either compare something or someone OR they can conduct an experiment. Once they had found their topic they had to come up with a question. If someone had a similar topic to you than you could work together but have individual reports. In this project my question was What community and service project is most popular for students in years 7 & 8? My topic was similar to Nandinis, so we decided to collect data for year 8 together. My research question is What community and service project is most popular for students in years 7 & 8? The AOI reference to my question is community and service. It relates to community and service because I wanted to find out what the most popular community and service project people in years 7 & 8 do and what they are doing to help the community. Data and Graph: Method of data collection: I used two different methods to collect my data. The first method I used was collecting data physically. I collected data with Nandini and surveyed every class in year 8. The second method I used was an online survey. I used this method because Nandini only needed to survey year eight and I needed year eight and seven, so to collect data in year seven I created a survey monkey and sent it out to them.

Mean, Median, Mode and Range: Mean: Total number of people: 133 Total choice: 13 Median: Cannot be found Mode: Most popular answer: Not Involved Mode: Not involved The mode shows that most people in years 7 & 8 do not spend their time helping out the community. I think this because most people might think that its boring and they might want to spend time with their friends in their free time. Range: Most popular answer: 96 Least popular answer: 1 Summary table of averages: 2 96-1= 95 Range: 95 133/13= 10.2
