Reflection: Real World Applications What does it mean? Interpreting linear models - Section 4: Our City Statistics Project Interpreting the Data

 

When students have to interpret data that is connected to a real world context, they are encouraged to grapple more with the relevance and application of the math. In addition, having student work and reasoning as to what the scatterplots and other forms of data students produced in this project gave me a priceless window into how my students are thinking about the concept.

What does it mean? Interpreting linear models

Unit 8: Our City Statistics: Who We Are and Where We are Going
Lesson 9 of 10

Objective: SWBAT interpret the rate of change (slope) and intercept for various contexts modeled by linear functions.

Big Idea: Students will apply their understanding of slope and intercepts to model different contexts with linear functions!
