My project is on the reaction time of a human. I tested 3 subjects using two computer tests. Before the tests each subject took their temperature with a digital thermometer. They recorded the temperature and started the test. I did this project because I always wanted to know why at some points of the day I was very slow at doing things and at some points I did really well and did some things fast. I wanted to know when and why I would be at my slowest. I believed that the younger the person the better their reaction time would be as well as the temperature of the body. I also believed the morning time would be the best time because you were rested and ready for the day.

Key points are highest blood pressure; lowest and highest body temperature and high alertness. This chart can have an effect on the reactions to the test I preformed.
I hoped to achieve a reason explaining when I will be at my weakest point during the day and when I will be at my strongest. I want to have the idea and science behind why I did this project. How can I carry this project off and know how to do it.
After each time a person took their temperature I recorded it into my logbook and graph. Then they took the reaction test. They had directions we followed. The thermometer the subjects used were the basic digital thermometers like the figure below.
After the tests were completed I did my logbook by writing all of the times the subjects received. Also, I wrote the time of day it was, the time it was at the moment of the test their temperature. When all of the subjects were done their test for the day I printed out all of the results and compared them to each other. I contrasted the temperature and reaction times. When the results from each test printed out I pasted them in the book. This allows everyone learning about what I did to have the real feel about the project. A good project has a nice board, and a binder where everyone can look through and know everything about your project, and finally a good research paper so the audience can repeat the experiment while doing the same exact things.
In my project, Reaction verse temperature and time of day I found out the higher the temperature the slower reaction you will have. On day 1, when subject 1 had he/she’s lowest temperature he/she’s also had the best reaction time at .247. This was the quickest reaction time by everyone on Day 1.
When subject 1 had his/her highest temperature at 37 degrees Celsius he/she had the slowest reaction time...
