1. Research question How does the activities you do daily affect your heartbeat? 2. Objectives To find out how different activities affect your circulatory system 3. Hypothesis Heavier activities will raise a person’s heartbeat, however calmer activities will increase it slightly, and doing nothing will keep your heartbeat normal. 4. Theoretical background The human heart pumps blood into all the parts of the body. The heartbeat we feel is actually the heart muscles pumping the blood. The intensity of how quickly our heart pumps blood depends on the activity a person does. The harder our body has to work the faster our heart pumps blood. There are many other factors that affect your heart rate, but the activities you do affect it the most. On an experiment performed by other people, they came to a conclusion that although running stimulates a greater heartbeat, walking stimulates a greater heartbeat than jogging. 5. a. Materials No materials needed b. Tools - Heartbeat counter - Excel document for recording data - Paper and pencil for recording data on the spot - A clock/stopwatch to count time c. Controlled variables (the variable that remains the same – to make a fair test) 1. The tool to measure our heartbeat 2. Each activity should be done for 5 minutes 3. There should be a 10 minutes rest after each experiment d. Independent variables (The variable that you change or vary for the experiment) 1. The different activities we do (Sleep, sitting, walking, jogging, and running up and down the stairs) e. Dependent variables (The variable that you measure) The heartbeat change after every activity 6. Methods
(Methods is written in flow charts)

8. Discussion and Evaluation
(It discusses and evaluates the results; relates the results with the theory)

The circulatory system works to pump blood (holding oxygen) around the body. The circulatory system pumps blood faster the harder the body is put to work. The activities in the experiment represent different activities of different intensities that the human body does everyday.
