A statistical analysis of whether segregating males and females for P.E. will increase participation and physical activity levels
We are constantly told at school/in the newspapers that physical exercise is good for us and important to living a long and healthy life. This is because it is linked to having a healthy heart preventing diabetes and stopping some cancers. However it appears from my experiences that some people choose to miss school P.E./sport because they sometimes have to do it with boys and girls together. I would like to see whether doing some sports in P.E. separately would ensure more people participate in and enjoy the activity. This study will also look at which aspects of P.E. teenagers prefer to do with their own gender and will make recommendations to help increase the number of pupils doing P.E./school sport.
