Product Description

This 78 page file includes station activities focused on bivariate data, linear models, and nonlinear relationships. They are designed to align with common core standards for eighth grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.

I created these activities to use in station rotations in an eighth grade classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover:

Unit 8: Patterns of Association in Bivariate Data

Unit 9: Nonlinear Functions

As students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:

1. Stations Organization and Tips (5 Pages!)

2. I Have Who Has - Bivariate Data (15 Cards!)

CCSS.8: SP.A.1, SP.A.2, SP.A.3, SP.A.4

3. Pick-A-Card - Bivariate Data (6 Scenarios!)

CCSS.8: SP.A.1, SP.A.2, SP.A.3

4. Problem-Solving - Linear Models (Real-World!)

CCSS.8: SP.A.1, SP.A.2, SP.A.3

5. Roundabout - Relative Frequency (4 Versions!)

CCSS.8: SP.A.4

6.GO FISH - Nonlinear Functions (36 Cards!)

CCSS.8: F.A.3, F.B.5

7. Dominoes - Nonlinear Functions (18 Cards!)

CCSS.8: F.A.3, F.B.5

8. Poly-Problem-Solver - Nonlinear Functions (4 Versions!)

CCSS.8: F.A.3

9. Pick-A-Card - Nonlinear Relationships (6 Scenarios!)

CCSS.8: F.A.3, F.B.5

When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.

These activities are included the BIG BUNDLE for Eighth Grade Second Semster at 20% off, and the BEST BUNDLE for Eighth Grade Complete Year at 25% off!!!!

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.SP.A.1

Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.SP.A.2

Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.SP.A.3

Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept. For example, in a linear model for a biology experiment, interpret a slope of 1.5 cm/hr as meaning that an additional hour of sunlight each day is associated with an additional 1.5 cm in mature plant height.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.SP.A.4

Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table. Construct and interpret a two-way table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects. Use relative frequencies calculated for rows or columns to describe possible association between the two variables. For example, collect data from students in your class on whether or not they have a curfew on school nights and whether or not they have assigned chores at home. Is there evidence that those who have a curfew also tend to have chores?

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.F.A.3

Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. For example, the function A = s2 giving the area of a square as a function of its side length is not linear because its graph contains the points (1,1), (2,4) and (3,9), which are not on a straight line.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.F.B.5

Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.
