# Introduction to bivariate data

Lesson 1 of 7

## Objective: SWBAT to understand bivariate data by constructing and interpreting scatter plots.

*75 minutes*

#### Warm Up

*10 min*

Each day, students walk into my classroom, pick up a classwork packet (that has the warm-up as well as the classwork for the day in one easy to pick up packet), and work on 2-3 problems. At different parts of the year, this may look different. Most often, it takes two possibilities:

a) Reviewing the previous day’s work, which prepares kids to tackle today’s aim.

b) Spiraling previous content, particularly from major standards from the Common Core

Today’s Warm Up is a bit different, in that it was the first day back from a break. In that case, we reviewed the break packet.

#### Huddle

During this time, I work with my students as a group to consolidate the day’s learning by choosing 1-2 problems to review. I NEVER skip this part of the lesson – it’s critical to really “bake in” the learning the kids just experienced.

A few thoughts here:

- I generally do one problem that is very straightforward, to increase their confidence that they learned what we set out to learn in our objective.
- I then choose 1-2 problems that required more sophisticated thinking, and often let kids present their own reasoning, and then open it up to others to critique their reasoning. This is a key part of the Common Core Mathematical Practice Standards (MP3).

#### Homework

Tonight's assignment (HW118 Introduction to bivariate data) is to be completed at home and should take students approximately 15 minutes.

Thank you very much. We are winding down and I was trying to find a fun way to introduce 8.SP.1-3. This looks great. Look for more feedback in the coming weeks. ;)
