Description:

This lesson is designed to further students' understanding of the concept of correlation as it relates to linear regression. This lesson provides links to discussions and activities related to scatter plots, correlation, and lines of best-fit as well as suggested ways to integrate them into the lesson. Finally, the lesson provides links to follow-up lessons designed for use in succession with the current one.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.SP.A.1: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

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.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.SP.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

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.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.SP.A.3: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-ID.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Summarize categorical data for two categories in two-way frequency tables. Interpret relative frequencies in the context of the data (including joint, marginal, and conditional relative frequencies). Recognize possible associations and trends in the data.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-ID.C.9: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Distinguish between correlation and causation.
