What relationships are you trying to establish using the winning time? Think about the dependent and independent variables. Are you planning to predict winning time as a function of time?

Linear Project:

 

Choose an Olympic sport My choice for project: The winning gold medal times for the women and the men for the 4x 100 meter relay to show the difference in the times.

 

Go to http://www.databaseolympics.com/ and collect data for winners in the event for at least 8 Olympic games (dating back to at least 1980

 

Make a quick plot for yourself to “eyeball” whether the data points exhibit a relatively linear trend. After you find the line of best fit, use your line to make a prediction for the next Olympics (2014 for a winter event, 2016 for a summer event ).

 

 

What relationships are you trying to establish using the winning time?  Think about the  dependent and independent variables.  Are you planning to predict winning time as a function of time?  Please read the LinearModelExample and see what trend you could establish using the winning data.
