PURPOSE: The purpose of this experiment is to find your resting and active heart rates.

HYPOTHESIS: If I am active then my heart rate will be higher than my resting heart rate.

SAFETY: A safety concern during this experiment is becoming out of breath or faint from doing a physical activity to raise your heart rate.
EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN:
The control setup of the experiment is my heart rate.
The independent variable of the experiment is doing jumping jacks.
The dependent variable of the experiment is my resting heart rate.

PROCEDURE:
1. While sitting quietly at your desk, find the pulse in your wrist and count the beats for one minute. Record the names of both subjects and their beats per minute heart rate.
2. Repeat step one, two more times for each subject. Record the data.
3. Calculate the average pulse rate for each subject and record the results on DATA TABLE 1.
4. Construct a data table below and place all of the recorded data in the data table.
