1. Our Sports

    Investigation

    Goal

    To determine our favorite sports and how we came to prefer them.

    Research question

    Do we choose our favorite sports randomly? Or do other factors like our geographical locations influence our choices of favorite sports?

    Why use data from multiple participants?

    We can explore how factors like geographical locations influenced our choices of favorite sports only if people from many locations participate.

    Investigation Protocol

    1. Fill in and submit the Report Form.
      Notes:
      In Question-4 “football” refers to American/Canadian football. 
      Also, we included dance, which can be very physical and sometimes competitive.
      If you selected “track & field,” enter your favorite event (100 meter dash, 200 meter hurdles, discus, etc.).
      We can’t list every sport so if the sport you like is not on the list, check “other” and enter it. 

      In Question-7 we ask if anyone in the GlobalLab community intends on becoming a professional athlete. 
      We don’t mean you wish you had the skills and talents to play a sport professionally, but actually think you have a realistic chance at doing so. If this is the case, tell us in what sport.
    2. Use the Working with Data file to test yourself.
