IA data analyzation help?

Recommended Posts

So for my math ia, I want to test whether gender and taste preference have a relationship, and what that relationship is if there is one. For the data collection, I'm doing a blind taste test with three different types of cookies and then having the participants rank them from favorite to least favorite. I know that for analyzing the data, I'm going to test the chi squared. But other than that, I can't really think of any ways to evaluate it aside from throwing the data into bar graphs for visual aid. Help? :)

bar graph would be too simple. I don't think that you would be able to do well. Think of something where you have a proper data for independant and dependant axis? then maybe try software like logger pro and try looking at relationships such as logarithmic, logistic, cubic, quintic etc.

This is not going to be a very useful reply (I didn't do Studies and have no idea), but unless you're George Bush Junior, the word 'analyzation' is usually pronouncalyzed 'analysis' ;)

I think thats far too complicated for a maths studies IA. I just picked two variables found on the internet. Then did the standard deviation, box & whisker plot, scatter graph, correlation coefficient, chi squared and the least square regression, and I got a 7.

You get no marks for the creativity or complexity, just as long as you have data presented correctly and some sophisticated processes, you'll do great.
