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.
