What affects our reaction times?

In science this week, we have been testing our reaction times.

We worked in pairs with one of us holding a ruler at the top while the other person held their thumb and index finger apart between the 0 mark on the ruler. The ruler was then dropped, and they had to catch it.  The number they caught it at was recorded in a table or results.

We generated our own questions to make comparisons between our reaction times. Some of us tested whether our dominant or non-dominant hand was better, some looked at whether having a distraction affected our reaction times or whether practise improved them.

We tested it several times to ensure our data was more accurate and applied our maths learning by calculating the mean average.
