Mice Investigation II

School: Meadowhead School

Year group: 9

Number of students: 2

Award: 3rd


I am investigating to see whether there is an overall difference in weight between male and female mice. My hypothesis is that the male mice will on average will weigh more. I think this is because this is the case in a lot of species. Although there is some factors to acknowledge, pregnancy and illness.


Overall we have concluded that on average males weigh more than females. Although females have a larger range of weight, a higher max weight and the lowest minimum weight, the differences are usually because of pregnancies. Our hypothesis has been proven correct although we did acknowledge the different factors surrounding.
