Your objective is to create
a two page report on computer disc to be turned in at the completion
of the chapter.
The first page of the report
pick an Olympic event contested
by both men and women.
make a table of values showing
men's and women's gold medal performances over the past 10 Olympic
plot both sets of data and
determine a line of best fit for each.
* As usual, creativity will
increase your score.
The second page should consist
of a report of the steps you went through to obtain your information
and the calculation of the lines of best fit. If you used the
internet, include key words you used and the web site address
of the information you found. In this event, which gender has
made the larger improvement in athletic performance over the last
40 years? From your data, is it possible that one day the men's
and women's performance in this event will be equal? If so, when
will it occur? If not, explain why. Will the athletic performance
in this event continue to increase or decrease at the same rate
over the next 40 years? Why or why not?
Note any difficulties you
may have encountered and where errors may have occurred.
Please be sure to use good
sentence structure and spelling in this report. Include a title,
introduction, and conclusion.
