Introduction to Scatter Plots, Line of Best Fit, and the Prediction Equation

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Linear Functions

Big Idea:The emphasis in this lesson is to take students a little beyond the basics of Scatter Plots to explain the correlation coefficient (r) and the coefficient of determination (r squared).

Linear Regression and Residuals

Types of Data Spiral Lesson

8th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistical Spirals

Big Idea:The type of data we collect connects to the type of conclusions we can draw.

HSS-ID.C.8

Compute (using technology) and interpret the correlation coefficient of a linear fit.*

HSS-ID.C.9

Distinguish between correlation and causation.*
