How do spatial factors influence gym preference

  1. 1. ISM GYMS<br />By: Andrew, Zehn, Malen, Martin, and Bea<br />
  2. 2. What is our project about?<br />Hypothesis: We believe the MS gym is preferred to the HS gym because of the size, brightness and location.<br />We wanted to know what people preferred: the MS or HS gym<br />Both gyms are far away from each other<br />The places people go to (canteen, library etc.) are closer depending on the gym<br />
  3. 3. Why is this important?<br />Atmosphere is very important for one to feel comfortable in a certain place. Our aim is to find out in which gym HS students can really enjoy doing sports. <br />This can also help for future reference.<br />
  4. 4. Number of people who chose each reason for preferring the MS Gym<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Data collection methods:<br />Questioning: A simple question sheet was devised with the following question- ‘Do you prefer the MS Gym over the HS Gym; do you think that the brightness, location, size or quality of equipment of either gym has affected your choice?’<br />Measuring distances: We used a ‘meter-wheel’ to measure the width/length of both gyms and the distances from both gyms to landmarks.<br />
  8. 8. Comparison of both gyms’ sizes<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Conclusion<br />Most coaches preferred the MS GYM<br />Most Freshmanspreferred the HS Gym<br />Most Sophomores preferred the MS Gym <br />Most Juniors preferred the MS Gym<br />Most Seniors preferred the HS Gym<br />
  11. 11. Evaluation<br />Data was collected quite late; which lead to problems in terms of completing the project the best way we could.<br />Although only HS students (and 5 PE teachers) were interviewed since they’ve experienced both Gyms; it would be a fairer test and less biased if a few Ms students were interviewed.<br />Would’ve been better to have more distances from Gyms to certain landmarks in order to have more quantitive data to compare with.<br />
