Reviewer Comments:

This lesson plan takes one full class period and teaches students the method and meaning of scatter plots. It has the students collecting data from their own lives and has both the advantages (relevance) and disadvantages (confusion) stemming from that data source. The lesson depends on Smart Notebook software. It is well-designed and to the point.
