**Title:**

An Investigation of the factors affecting Standing Broad Jump

**Question or problem being addressed:**

A student wanted to find out how to jump further in Standing Broad Jump

**Variables:**

The Independent variables : Angle of swinging of arms, Angle of Bending of knees

The Dependent variables : Distance of jump

The Constants : The person, Person's shoes, Person's attire

**B. Hypothesis**

The higher the angle of the swing and the more you bend your knees will increase your jump distance.

**C. Description in detail of method or procedures**

Equipment list:

- Standing Broad Jump mat

- 13 Year Old Boy

- S&W attire

- Keen eyes

**• Procedures: Detail all procedures and experimental design to be used for data**

42. Repeat each jump 5 times

43. Tabulate all the data into a table

44. Calculate the average of the 5 jumps

**• Risk and Safety: Identify any potential risks and safety precautions to be taken.**

1. Tripping over shoelaces (Tie shoelaces very tightly)

2. Spraining ankle after jump (Land properly)

3. Hitting something mid-jump (Remove all nearby obstacles)

2. Spraining ankle after jump (Land properly)

3. Hitting something mid-jump (Remove all nearby obstacles)

**• Data Analysis: Describe the procedures you will use to analyze the data/results that**

**answer research questions or hypothesis**

1. Set up a table to compare the results

2. Take the average of the 5 jumps and input it into the table

3. Draw a graph with the y-axis as Jump Distance and the x-axis as Angle of Arm Swing & Knees Bent

4. Compare and analyze the data before deciding the best combination of arm swing and bending of knees to jump during standing broad jump

5. Therefor, the best combination of arm swing and bending of knees would result in the furthest distance jumped

5. Therefor, the best combination of arm swing and bending of knees would result in the furthest distance jumped
