### MEMORY TEST Who has the best Memory? Boys or girls?

```By: Joel Bloemker & Andrew Goldsborough
PURPOSE

The reason we are doing this is to see if
the boys or the girls have the best memory.

HYPOTHESIS
We think that girls have the best memory
because they are the ones that have to do
the house keeping and have to remember
what they have to do.

Conclusions



In our test, we found out that girls have the
better memory because the total result for all
three trials was Boys: 152; Girls: 162.
Our Hypothesis was correct. It turns out that
girls do have the better memory.
We think that our hypothesis was correct
because, like we said before it is probably
because they have to do more stuff than boys
and have to remember what they need to do.
