#### Transcript of Athletes VS. Non- Athletes Reaction Time

By: Mylan, Jazmine, & Val Athletes VS. Non-Athletes Reaction Time Do athletes or non- athletes have a better reaction time?

Hypothesis:
If we test to see if athletes or non- athletes have a better reaction time, then athletes will. Steps to achieve:
1) We gathered our materials (a notebook, a pencil, and a yard stick.)
2) We dropped the yard stick just above the person's hand and they were told to catch it.
3) We recorded where their thumb landed on the yard stick. (we tested each person 3 times, and recorded their averages)
CONTROLS: where we dropped it from, and how the person held out their hand
VARIABLE: Athletes VS. Non-athletes.
MEASURED: reaction time based on cm.
TOOL USED: yard stick 5+7= (cc) image by anemoneprojectors on Flickr 5+7= (cc) image by anemoneprojectors on Flickr Conclusion

We stated in our hypothesis that athletes would have a better reaction time than non-athletes. In conclusion, we were correct. In our data, the average reaction time for athletes was 48.312 cm, and for non-athletes it was 64.868 cm.
