My presentation on varying human heights is due tomorrow, and all I have is the data! I don't know how to relate that to class concepts.
*Breaks 4th Wall*
So much planning went into gathering this data, this investigation; I had to find the people, schedule meetings, and buy measuring tools that were long enough to measure tall people.
Steven, from Indonesia
I spent months traveling the world looking for extraordinarily tall and short people.
9 Feet Tall
3 Feet Tall
Donald, from Germany
As well as come up with all the details of my project.
Hypothesis: People's heights vary based on the environment they live in and their genetics. Prediction: A wealthy person with "tall" genes who has a healthy lifestyle (what they eat, how much they sleep) and is surrounded by supportive people to make them happy and confident is going to be taller than a person with "short" genes who has a poor lifestyle and is surrounded by people who make them depressed. Experimental Question: What Causes People to be different heights? Independent Variable: Changes in the environment (by country) and varying height genes in different people Dependent Variable: Max height of a person Control Group: Global Average Height (male and female) Standard Variables: None as everything in a human's environment and genetics contribute to the overall height
Average Height by Country (Meters)
I have my data...
I just don't know how to explain it!
I know what I'll do!
He is one of the most accomplished biology teachers in the world!
I need to communicate this information with Dr. Crowthers so he can help analyze it!
