This survey is to research for men and women about estimating size different abilities. I guess the men’s estimating abilities is strong than women’s, the result of the test support my hypothesis. Then I will careful about avoidingapparent mistakes. It will help with my investigation and get the better information. In the end, I will make a conclusion with it.
This survey of the books is for explaining the different estimating size abilities between males and females. I chose 20 adolescences randomly to become my research objects, and I selected two different lengths of booksas my experiment equipment. The results can be only known until my research was finished. In doing this test, the distance between the books and my investigators is 1 meter. Finally, I believe thatthe better result comes from male investigators.
2. Research methodology
Before the investigation, I have prepared two completely different books for research. Obviously, a piece of paper is also required for me to write the result. In the end, Icollected the result together and filled them in a table. Their guesses are exceedingly variable, and I cannot conclude the result till now.

After I analyzed their answers, Ineaten it and came up the result. The result of females is not that steady around the real than males. In first investigation, the highest number estimated by females is 17cm. the lowest number estimated is 7. To opposite, the highest number of males is 16 and the lowest is 10. Theaverage number between the males and the females is 1.15cm. The average of males is much close to the really number. In second investigation, the highest number of male is 32cm and the lowest number is 27cm average of the males is 29.5cm and the females’ average is 28.9cm. From this result, I can clearly sum that male have the better estimating size ability.
From the chart we can see the females result is much different with males. Because of my well-preparedpreparation, the error of the data is very small and can be ignored. In light of getting more accurate result, Imeasuredthe distance between the investigators and objects every time. The males answers are much closer to the real size which is 14 cm. And they were faster in answering my question. The result is the males can estimate more accurately than female did. From my research result, we can see that my hypothesis is right.
I asked 20 students who have the similar age. I also keep the same number of males and
females for making sure that the data is less error. Of course, errors cannot be avoided at all. From my report, females can estimate longer object better because the average answer ofestimating 30cm long book is closer with males and the real answer in this test. Also, this experiment of my science report still has some aspects to improve. For example, my investigation environment is so noisy, maybe this influences the result they came out. However in my opinion, my survey is enough to get the right answers. The result shows us, males can estimate better than females.
According to those researches online, most of them concluded the same result with mine. The difference is they considered much more effects than me. Fortunately, both of mine and those articles online conclude the same idea that males have better estimating size ability than females. In addition, there is one professional research point out that the better estimating size ability that males have is inherent ability. Then it shows some convincible charts and tables to support its idea.
The reason why my hypothesis is right is the males can do solid geometry better than females mostly. Males can think many solid figures by their hand and it’s difficult for females. Their better math ability is naturally there. There is no doubt that my answer is correct. In general, my investigation can easily show people the reason, process and result.
5. Conclusion and Recommendations
In conclusion, males can do the estimate better than females. This is inherent ability. Also, a convincible survey should be tested in many times. Or the answer will be wrong sometimes.In the end, we will get the real right answer.
