Quantitative Variables & Scatterplots: Functions (Common Core Aligned Lesson)
This product includes a lesson plan with worksheet and answer key aligned with the common core. Students learn how to describe (e.g., strength of correlation) and represent the relationship between two quantitative variables on a scatterplot. Students also learn how to fit a function (e.g., linear, quadratic, and exponential) to data, how to use the scatterplot to choose a function, and how to use functions to solve problems in context. The worksheet can be used as an in-class handout or as homework. Questions assess statistical reasoning as well as mechanics.
This product includes:
1) Lesson lecture slides in PDF (annotated with speaker notes) and PowerPoint
2) Lesson lecture handout in PDF
3) Worksheet in PDF
4) Answer key with and without detailed rubric in PDF
1) Learn how to represent two quantitative variables on a scatterplot.
2) Learn how to describe the relationship between two quantitative variables.
3) Learn how to fit a function (e.g., linear, quadratic, exponential) to data.

Common Core Standards:
HSS.ID.B.6: Represent two quantitative variables on a scatterplot and describe how
the variables are related.
HSS.ID.B.6.A: Fit a function to the data; use functions fitted to data to solve problems in the context of data. Use given functions or choose a function suggested by the context. Emphasize linear, quadratic, and exponential models.
