Systems Project Natalia VelascoDescription of Data:The data points shown on the frequency tables and graph show that although we measured across five different days and multiple different subjects the amount of contact the subjects made with their own face stayed relatively the same. The graph shows this very well because it is clear to see there are no significant increases or decreases in the line across all five days. The graph resembled a almost flat line. For our duration observation however the data showed us something different. Here we chose to look at duration of students looking at their iPhone. Across our five days of observations we noticed the amount of time each subject spent looking at their device was more significantly different. The graph displays this by illustration sharp increases and decreases for every day. There weren't two days that had similar results and so our graph reflects this with its mountain shape, lower duration points followed by higher duration alternated back and forth. Our last observation was opportunity-based. This graph was the most surprising of the three and unlike the other two did not seem to show a pattern. For the first three days we observed the correct behavior was increasing steadily and the incorrect behavior was decreasing steadily but on the fourth day the opposite occurred. Both behaviors had equal correct and incorrect occurrences and intersected paths. On the fifth day although we expected the behavior to go back to the pattern we saw on the first three days the two switched. We saw an increase in incorrect behaviors and a decrease in correct behavior. This is displayed in our graph with two separate lines on the same graph. Measurement Procedures:For the Frequency observations my partner and I both observed the student cafe area from the second floor at the BLB. We chose to observe from this area so that we would not disrupt the subjects and influence their behavior, we focused on a single table each day with 3
