Changes in Women Perspective

  1. 1. Building Mathematical Ability Project Presentation Efforts by: Tejas Arora Bachelor of Honours in Commerce Delhi College of Arts and Commerce
  2. 2. Acknowledgement  I would like to extend my gratitude to my teacher Mr. Vidur who gave me the golden opportunity to carry out the survey.  This wonderful project helped me in doing a lot of research and I discovered a lot many new things.  It gave me insights on womanhood and the sacrifice they make, making me realize the importance of women.  I have wholeheartedly enjoyed the challenge of examining and researching on the topic.  I would also like to extend my sincerest thanks and appreciation to those patient souls who helped me accomplish this study and happily filled out the questionnaires.
  3. 3. Objectives  To understand the use of basic Mathematics and Statistics in doing real life survey.  To know how priorities of women change after marriage and the sacrifices they make.  To give a practical approach to theoretical knowledge of graphs and pie-charts.
  4. 4. Methodology  I first decided to go with TWO surveys instead of just one.  Secondly, I made a questionnaire to know what girls of modern era feel about health and other important issues etc, and how women earlier felt about the same thing so as to give a comparative analysis.  At the end, I have made a conclusion by collecting all the results and presenting them in graphs to give a more practical inference.
  5. 5. Introduction to Topic  Woman was created as a companion for man.  But now we see woman as a second- class citizen. We often see them hopeless, destitute, wronged only because this world has stopped giving importance to the woman.  With this project, we are trying at our level to improve the status of women not only in the eyes of men but also in their own self.

  26. 26. Survey 2  Now I will compare the ‘before marriage’ data of married women (referred to as Before 1990’s) with females who are unmarried right now (referred to as After 1990’s)!  I will give inferences regarding if it is a positive or a negative sign seeing the trend.  No calculations involved!
