Figure 1. Fishman Island Data Set. The above scatter plots show a positive correlation between hours slept and GPA, as well as between the number of hours spent studying and GPA. We removed outliers that skewed the data set, including indivduals that slept less than 35 hours a week, an individual who studied for 50 hours and an individual who identified as "other" when asked to identify as a gender. The strongest correlation seen was between the hours studied per week and the corresponding GPA. Amongst genders there was not an observeable difference, when looking at GPA,s. But when observing the correlation between the hours slept per week and the hours studied per week the female population had a much stronger correlation than the male population.
