So Easy to Use! Simply print and fold! No need to rotate pages! Scatter Plots and Lines of Best Fit FOLDABLE also includes a PowerPoint to go along with the foldable.
Foldable has 2 tiers of differentiation, perfect for the inclusive classroom! 1 set has fill-in-the-blank style notes within the foldable, while the other foldable has the notes already filled in. On both sets, students will have to work out the examples.
Students will learn how to:
Create Scatter Plots
Describe Scatter Plots using Correlation and Causation
Create Lines of Best Fit (by hand and with technology)
Interpret Equations, R-Values, Predict
Common Core Standards:
CCSS.HSS.ID.B.6 Represent data on two quantitative variables on a scatter plot, and describe how the variables are related.
CCSS.HSS.ID.B.6c Using given or collected bivariate data, fit a linear function for a scatter plot that suggests a linear association.
CCSS.HSS.ID.C.7 Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.
CCSS.HSS.ID.C.8 Compute (using technology) and interpret the correlation coefficient “r” of a linear fit. (For instance, by looking at a scatterplot, students should be able to tell if the correlation coefficient is positive or negative and give a reasonable estimate of the “r” value.) After calculating the line of best fit using technology, students should be able to describe how strong the goodness of fit of the regression is, using “r”.
CCSS.HSS.ID.C.9 Distinguish between correlation and causation.
