What is a Backstroke?

It is a swimming stroke that is performed while lying on the back with the arms lifted alternately out of the water in a backward circular motion with the legs kicking.

Ultimate Goal

The ultimate goal of this project is to determine whether women's times can ever be the same as or beat men's times in the event of a 100m Backstroke.

The procedure followed was:


  1. Data from the years 1976-2012 for men's and women's times were entered into a calculator.
  2. A graph showing the times for both genders was created.
  3. Two lines of best fit were created from both these pieces of information.
  4. The intersection of these two lines were found.
