3. 3. Introduction This is a project about the chapter, statistics. We are required to form a group of 5 members to complete this project. We got this inspiration of doing ways for Taylor’s student come to campus while we are chilling at the Starbucks corner. We saw people and traffic at the main entrance which are formed by car, bus & walking to campus. After discuss the main topic that we decided, we discuss further and find out more situation and incidents that always happened while taking these transports or walking to campus. We found that this topic was really interesting that make each of us having mood to do this project. We made a survey form to carry out this survey. Survey was made by Taylor’s lakeside by asking students to fill our survey form. All of the students are willing to participants. After few days of survey at different places, such as block A, library and corridor, we had finally carried out our survey successfully. We thank to all that giving much cooperation for us to complete this survey.
4. 4. OBJECTIVES The objective of this assignment includes learning to collect data, interpret and lastly convert all into statistical data. Based on the knowledge gained in Mathematics classes, we are required to analyze data collected and apply fundamental mathematical principles to present the data effectively. Our aim of this statistics study: 1. To study willingness of females and males in different situation. -By creating questionnaires to learn more from the participants. 2. To apply the knowledge we learnt in class in analyzing data and draw a conclusion from the results. -After collecting the 200 data, we will move forwards to a conclusion for this survey. 3. To collect and organize statistical data.
5. 5. METHODOLOGY We conducted a survey at Taylor’s Lakeside University to collect all the data that needed. Fortunately, most of the students were friendly and they helped us a lot by filling the survey form. 1. We worked as a group to discuss questionnaire form. We drafted everything important on paper. 2. We choose about 25 most suitable questions to put in our survey forms. But we finalize the questions into 20 questions. 3. We made the survey forms by using Microsoft Word and 200 numbers of copies were printed out.
6. 6. 4. We separate the survey forms to every member, so each person will have 40 survey forms. 5. All the survey forms were brought to Taylor’s Lakeside University and the survey was conducted within the University. 6. Male filled up 100 survey forms and female filled up another 100 survey forms. 7. After the survey, we work as a group to collect and calculate the data together. 8. At the end, we started to do our report and the graphic board as well. To be more efficient, we separate our works wisely.

9. 9. ---THANK YOU--ANALYSIS 60 50 40 30 Male Female 20 10 0 Bus/ Public Transport Car Walking FIGURE 1: The number of males and females that take public transport, car and walking in Taylor’s University. 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Bus / Public transport Car Walking
10. 10. FIGURE 2 : The number of students in each transportation. This bar chart shows that most of the males and females take cars to Taylor’s University which is formed by 50% males and 42% females. There are 24% males and females taking bus or public transport which contained the smallest number. Based on the bar chart above, we analysed that most of the people owned a car and travel by private transport. Female Male <5 Minutes Before 50% 50% 42% >5 Minutes Before 58% FIGURE 3 : The number of males and females arrive and wait prior to the bus schedule within 5 minutes. We calculated the percentage of male and female follow bus schedule by dividing the total of each gender (24 males and 24 females) and multiply 100. 12/24x 100% = 50% 12/24x 100% = 50% 14/24 x100% =58.33% 10/24 x 100% = 41.67% The pie chart shows that 50% of males will reach bus station less than 5 minutes while 58% females spend less than5 minutes. As the pie chart showing, females spend more time compared to males in house before going bus stop which results in less time left when reach bus stop.
11. 11. Female Male 16.7% 41.7% Yes 58.3% No 83.3% FIGURE 4 : The number of males and females will take a seat beside an opposite sex in a bus. We calculated the percentage of male and female in taking a seat beside an opposite sex by dividing the total of each gender took public transport to campus (24 males and 24 females) and multiply 100. 20/24 X 100% = 83.33% 4/24 X 100% = 16.67% 10/24 X 100% = 41.67 % 14/24X100% = 58.33% The pie chart shows that 83.3% males will choose to sit beside an opposite seat while there are only 41.7% females will choose to do that. Males think that sitting
12. 12. beside an opposite sex is not a matter but due to self-protection, females will choose to sit beside same sex. Male Female 33% 38% Yes No 62% 67% FIGURE 5 : The number of males and females will give the seat to an elderly. We calculated the percentage of male and female giving their seat to an elder by dividing the total of each gender (24 males and 24 females) and multiply 100. 16/24 X 100% = 66.67% 8/24 X 100% = 33.33% 15/24 X100% = 61.5% 9/24 x 100% = 37.5%
13. 13. From the pie chart, it shows that 67% of males will let their seat to the elders while 62% of females will do that. Both genders think that giving seat to elder is important to show respect and moral teaches them in that way. Male Female 17% 33% Yes No 67% 83% FIGURE 6 : The number of males and females will take a nap inside the bus. We calculated the percentage of male and female will take a nap in bus by dividing the total of each gender (24 males and 24 females) and multiply 100.
14. 14. 20/24 x 100% = 83.33% 4 /24 x 100% = 16.67% 16/24 x 100% = 66.67% 8/24 x 100% = 33.33% The pie chart shows that 83% males will take a nap while there are 67% females will do that. Males have higher number because they think that ability to protect themselves is higher than female, they feel that it is safe to take a nap. Female 25% Male 29% Yes No 71% 75% FIGURE 7 : The number of males and females will take a bus alone. We calculated the percentage of male and female will take bus alone by dividing the total of each gender (24 males and 24 females) and multiply 100. 17/24 x 100% = 70.83% 7/ 24 x 100% = 29.17% 18/24 x 100% = 75% 6/24x 100% = 25% The pie chart shows that 71% males will take bus alone while there are 75% females will do that. Most of the males in this survey are mostly chosen in car which resulted in less number of males in bus.
15. 15. Male Female 33% 42% Standing Siting 58% 67% FIGURE 8: The number of males and females in preferring standing or sitting in the bus. We calculated the percentage of male and female will sit in bus by dividing the total of each gender (24 males and 24 females) and multiply 100. 8/24x 100% = 33.33% 16/24 x 100% = 66.67% 10/24 x 100% = 41.67% 14/24 x 100% = 58.33% The pie chart shows that 67% males will take a nap while there are 58% females will do that. In this survey, we found out that females are not willing to sit next to a person who is opposite sex, this causes the number of females siting in bus is less than males.
16. 16. Female Male 40% 34% < 10 Minutes 60% > 10 Minutes 66% FIGURE 9: The number of males and females will reach the campus within 10 minutes.

18. 18. The pie chart shows that 86% males will overtake another car no matter how short is the distance while there are only 67% females will do that. To reach campus in a shorter time, most of the males will overtake another vehicle, although they know that is very dangerous. In the other side, Most of the females will drive in a safe way. Male Female 45% 46% 55% 54% FIGURE 11: The number of males and females in preferring perfume inside the car. We calculated the percentage of males and females in appling air refresher in car by dividing the total of each gender (50 males and 42 females) and multiply by 100. 23/50 x 100% = 46% 27/50 x 100% = 54% 23/42 x 100% = 54.76% 19/42 x 100% = 45.24% The pie chart shows that there is 46% males will apply air refresher while 55% females will apply it. Most of the males have a perception that appling air refresher are mostly for females, which has resulted the less number in males using it. Yes No
19. 19. Male Female 38% Yes 45% No 55% 62% FIGURE 12: The number of males and females have driven without a driver’s license (valid) before. We calculated the percentage of male and female will drive without license by dividing the total of each gender (50 males and 42 females) and multiply 100. 31/50 x 100% = 62% 19/50 x 100% = 38% 23/42 x 100% = 54.76% 19/42 x 100% = 45.24% The pie chart shows that 62% males will drive with no license while there are 55% females will do. Most of the males think that it does not matter when they drive
20. 20. with no license where most of the females think that breaking rule is illegal and refused to do it. Female Male 16% 26% Yes No 74% 84% FIGURE 13: The numbers of males and females have ever eat inside the car before. We calculated the percentage of male and female will eat in car by dividing the total of each gender (50 males and 42 females) and multiply 100. 42/50 x 100% = 84% 8/50 x 100% = 16% 31/42 x 100% = 73.81% 11/42 x 100% = 26.19%
21. 21. The pie chart shows that 84% males will choose to eat in car while 74% females will do that. Females are more concern about the hygiene in car where males think that it is fine to eat in car. Female Male 36% 38% <100mph >100mph 64% 62% FIGURE 14 :The number of males and females driving speed. We calculated the percentage of male and female will drive at the limit higher than 100mph by dividing the total of each gender (50 males and 42 females) and multiply 100. 19/50 x 100% = 38% 31/50 x 100% = 62%
22. 22. 27/42 x 100% = 64.26% 15/42 x 100% = 35.71% The pie chart shows that 62% males will drive more than 100mph while 36% females will do that. Less number of females drive higher than 100mph due to safety and they have higher awareness when driving on road with high speed is dangerous. Female Male 38% 50% 50% < 3 Minutes > 3 Minutes 62% FIGURE15 : The number of males and females reach in campus either more or less than 3 minutes.
23. 23. We calculated the percentage of male and female will reach campus within 3 minutes by dividing the total of each gender (50 males and 42 females) and multiply 100. 10/26 x 100% = 38.4% 16/26 x 100% = 61.54% 17/34 x 100% = 50% 17/34 x 100% = 50% Female Male 15% 32% Yes No 68% 85% FIGURE 16 : The number of males and females will walk home alone at night. We calculated the percentage of males and females in walking home alone at night by dividing the total of each gender walking home (26 males and 34 females) and multiply 100.
24. 24. 22/26 x 100% = 84.62% 4/26 x 100% = 15.38% 11/34 x 100% = 32.35% 23/34 x 100% = 67.65% The pie chart shows that 85% males are willing to walk home alone at night while there are only 32% females do that. Females are most of the victims to robbery cases. So, female will not take risk to walk alone in the dark night. Female Male 35% 35% Yes No 65% 65% FIGURE 17 : The number of males and females will take a pepper spray in the journey to campus.
25. 25. We calculated the percentage of males and females in taking a pepper spray while walking alone in the night by dividing the total of each gender walking home (26 males and 34 females) and multiply 100. 12/26 x 100% = 46.15% 14/26 x 100% = 53.85% 12/34 x 100% =35.29% 22/34 x 100% = 64.71% The pie chart shows that 35% males will carry while 65% females will carry. Female have lower ability to protect themselves compared to males, this results in where higher number of females will carry pepper spray. Female Male 8% 38% Yes No 62% 92% FIGURE18 : The number of males and females will take attention to the surrounding while walking alone. We calculated the percentage of males and females will be aware of surrounding when walking home alone by dividing the total of each gender walking home (26 males and 34 females) and multiply 100.

Less number of females will text when walking because there is a lot of cases where females got involved higher than males. Male Female 15% 27% Yes No 73% 85% FIGURE 20 : The number of males and females will carry an umbrella under a hot sun while walking to campus. We calculated the percentage of males and females will carry an umbrella while walking by dividing the total of each gender walking home (26 males and 34 females) and multiply 100. 7/26 x 100% = 26.92% 19/26 x 100% = 73.08% 29/34 x 100% =85.29% 5/34 x 100% =14.71%
28. 28. The pie chart shows that 27% males will carry an umbrella while 85% females will carry. Most of the females are care for their skin health where males think that is fine to expose directly to the sun.
29. 29. CONCLUSION After completing this project, we have known that how to apply something that we learn in mathematics class in our daily life. Statistics are important to survey everything just around us. We will never get the result without applying statistics. Our prediction something may wrong without statistics. From this project, we get to know most of the Taylor’s students actually come to school by car, follow by walking and bus is the least method for students to reach campus. We, the architecture students are having many assignments, however, technology make our life easier. We did our graph and bar chart by using Mircosoft Excel which is digital software. We learn how to apply the bar chart correctly based on the data that we gained. Without the help of this technology, we can’t complete and pass up the project on time. Besides, teamwork is important. Project is not a one man work. It required the help of every member to produce a good outcome. Thanks to all members for giving much cooperation during the period of doing this project. We are all busy but we still can draw some free time to complete it, much appreciated! Finally, thanks to our lecturer, Miss Ang for giving a chance to let us improve our mathematics skill practically that may help us a lot in our final exam.
