"1. In this experiment I am testing to see if music affects a person’s concentration by using an online game of memory. 2. I was interested in this experiment because I want to find out if music can help people focus. 3. The results for this experiment showed that after averaging my 70 trials, 41% out of 70 middle school students did better without music. This information indicates that the type of music that was used while playing the Easter Memory Game did not help students decrease the amount of turns it took for them to complete the game. 4. This information will help people who have a hard time focusing and want to find a way that is easy and can help them. "
