Reflection: Real World Applications Solve problems invoving bivariate data - Section 2: Play of the Day

 

I came across some really interesting data in the news as the SAT was being redesigned looking at the average SAT score by family income level.  As our mission is to prepare kids from low-income communities to graduate from college, this data was particularly relevant.  I also ran the regression on this.

 

Both resources could be useful as you create problems related to the standards in this bivariate data unit.
