- Which activities increased your heart rate the most?
- Which activities increased your heart rate the least?
- Was the order in which you ranked the activities accurate? (It's good to be wrong!) Explain
- What changes did you notice about your heart rate as you became more active?
1.The activities that increased my heart rate the most were the two last ones, Running in Place, and Push-ups. They actually tied with 156 seconds as a heart rate.
2. The activity that increased my heart the least is Sitting. I thought that that activity would increase my heart the least because I am just sitting in place. It had 76 seconds fro a heart rate.
3. The order was very accurate. The only difference was that the last two activities tied. I thought that one would come before the other, but at least I learned something new!
4. I noticed that the more tiring the activities got, the higher my heart rate was. I also noticed that not only did my heart rate change, I became more and more tired after each activity I did.
5. I think that my heart rate changed because my body has to pump blood quicker, so that it can reach different parts of my body that I need to do the activity.
