The goal of this project is for students to identify when a linear relationship exists between two variables. Once finding the linear equation, students will then interpret the real-life meaning of the slope and the y-intercept. They will also use their knowledge of the correlation coefficient r to determine whether the variables have a strong or weak correlation.
