Do you want to extend in a 6th grade class that understands quadrants? Need a good activity for your 8th grade class before you talk about trend lines? How about a refresher for your Algebra 1 or Algebra 2 students? While we are at it, let's give it to our AP Statistics kids for fun!
Depending on the ability level, this activity can take between 2-15 minutes. Download the file for suggested extension activities.
6.11A: Measurement and data. The student applies mathematical process standards to use coordinate geometry to identify locations on a plane. The student is expected to graph points in all four quadrants using ordered pairs of rational numbers.
8.11A: Measurement and data. The student applies mathematical process standards to use statistical procedures to describe data. The student is expected to: construct a scatterplot and describe the observed data to address questions of association such as linear, non-linear, and no association between bivariate data;
