Conclusions and Recommendations
Research on gender differences have been done by scientist for a very long time. The experiment we’ve done is to test if there is any difference between males and females on estimating size, which we strongly believed that males are better than females. Five objects used in the experiment. The five objects were given to the people who were involved in the experiment to estimate size. The actual result we got was same with our hypothesis that males are better than females when estimating size. Introduction
My hypothesis is that male teenagers estimate size better than female teenagers and this gap is noticeably big. Research Methodology
The plan to measure this research is collecting data from 20 subjects, every subject estimate the lengths of five objects and tell me their answer. These 20 subjects need to conclude 10 male and 10 female to balance the result. The result will directly indicate whether male can estimate size better than female teenager. Research Results
The chart shows the difference between male and female. Every two column is the difference of same object by male and female (male on the left and female on the right). The smaller these valuesare the better subject estimate length.These five objects are dining card, Tracis’s height, shoe, IPhone 4s and pen. Among these five objects, male have get better result 3 times, rather than 2 times of women. Also, this chart shows a strange phenomenon that when estimating the length of shoes, no matter male or female both get a...
