Your Questions, Our Answers
1. What is Kinesthetic Sense?
Though the dictionary defines it as “The sense that detects bodily position, weight, or movement of the muscles, tendons, and joints.” We think it is better described as the sense where we feel things with our body parts instead of using our eyes.
2. What is Visual Sense?
Visual sense is the sense that 60% world’s population uses to learn. Even though the dictionary says it is “the ability to see; the faculty of vision”, we believe that visual sense is when you use your eyes to learn instead of having someone tell you.
3. Why this Experiment?
This year we learned kinesthetic and visual sense in our Human Biology class. When Alexa and I were thinking of our DEEP project idea, it really interested us to find out if the results of the over land kinesthetic and visual experiment would differ if it were underwater.
4. How do we determine if visual did better than Kinesthetic, or vice versa?
Look at the animation on the animation page. When a person travels along the course we measure how far away they are from each mark. At the end we average up the totals, the smaller the number the better they did.
