I started using choice boards last year and LOVE them! I never gave my students the opportunity to be creative in my classroom. For years, it was notes, homework, and repeat until the test. These choice boards give students the ability to express themselves within their particular learning style. I have been so impressed with the results I get from my students.

This choice board focuses on Bivariate Data. Also included in this file are mini posters that describe each option on the choice board. I put these on a bulletin board that hangs all year, as we do a number of choice boards. You can also show them on a projector when introducing the choice board to your class. I like to distribute the choice boards at the beginning of the unit and give them a due date around the test.

When my students did their first choice board, I gave them a period in class to work on it. Following choice boards were completed entirely on their own time. I have also created and included a general rubric that you can use for any choice board item. To differentiate, I occasionally allow lower level students to complete two choices (I will cross out a row). The other option for differentiation is to reduce the number required for a particular choice. For example, have a student create two story problems rather than four. I also give students extra credit for any choices that they complete beyond the minimum.

I have created 14 choice boards for 8th grade common core math covering the following topics:

1. Introducing Transformations
2. Understanding Congruence
3. Understanding Similarity
4. Rational and Irrational Numbers
5. Pythagorean Theorem
6. Functions
7. Introduction to Linearity
8. Bivariate Data
9. Nonlinear Functions
10. Solving Linear Equations
11. Systems of Linear Equations
12. Exponents and Scientific Notaiton
13. Geometric Relationships
14. Volume of Cones, Spheres, and Cylinders

Common Core:
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.
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.
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.
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?
