My Problem was how does sleep affect the brain.According to what I have read on sleep, It is when your brain looks over the knowledge you have learned through out the day. My hypothosis is that if you get 8 to 10 hours of sleep, you will focus better during the day. During my experiments and observations, when you sleep in longer than 7 hours, you will focus longer than if you go to sleep and get 6 hours or less. During my procedure, in order to see if the method of sleeping 8-10 hours is working, try taking brain health tests like memory or fact recall every 3-4 days. What I analysis from my data is that in my brain health data collection for my highest math score, it is 21 and my lowest 13. For my memory test I achieved levels 11 for my highest and 9 for my lowest. I noticed that during my sleep data collection I mostly slept for 9 hours during those 13 day. I notice that I had two trends that stood out the most during my data collection. My first trend was when I slept in later I would have a better score in my mad math minute. My second one was when I went to bed early, I would get a bad score in my mad math minute. The 3rd and final one I noticed was when I did my second mad minute test, I got 21 correct problems, and my third test I got 13 correct problems.So in conclusion, if you get at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep, you will focus longer. The Hypothosis for my case study was, If I get 8-10 hours of sleep, Then my brain health will increase. The hypothosis was supported because my first test is lower than my last test. The problem for my case study was, Can I improve brain health if I get 8-10 hours of sleep. Based on my data, yes I can improve my brain health by getting 8-10 hours of sleep. Posible errors in this experiment includes missing my first day of meeting my goal by getting 6 hours of sleep. For the next experiment I could stick to my goal and get 8-10 hours of sleep instead of getting 6 hours of sleep like I did on my first sleep tracking box. I would want to explore and see what would happen if I had a new sleeping arrangement, so like I try to sleep on the couch or on the mattress.

The Impact of School Start Times on Adolescent Health and Academic Performance

If you don't get enough sleep in high school and college, it will destroy your GPA and SAT scores. It will make you grumpy and agitated. Sleep deprivation was a factor in some of the biggest disasters in recent history: the 1979 nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, the massive Exxon Valdez oil spill, the 1986 nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl.
