Product Description
This activity hits the main intent of both 8.SP.1 and 8.SP.2. Engage students with a scatterplot relevant to their lives that explores the association between student height and free throw accuracy. They describe whether the association is linear or non-linear, positive or negative, strong or weak. Students will also identify clusters and outliers and predict what they represent. (For example, the outlier who is really tall but a really bad shot may be a center, like Shaquille O'Neal whose enormous size makes his coordination very poor).

Students will also draw a line of best fit and use this line to make predictions. Finally, students identify where a data point that would represent themselves would fall.

Included are sample answers that show the teacher the depth students' answers should be at to fully master the Common Core Standards.
