Hypothesis: I think the amount of time watching television will be greater than the amount of study time. Conclusion: The time spent watching TV is slightly greater than the time spent studying, which agrees with my hypothesis. Ways to Improve: Spread out studying over entire week. Limit TV time to less than or = study time. Create a “Goals” list.
