Scatterplots and Non-Linear Data

Unit 5: Modeling With Statistics
Lesson 15 of 19

Objective: SWBAT construct a scatter plot, determine a line of best fit, and recognize data that should be modeled by a non-linear function.

Big Idea: In this lesson students discover that some bivariate data should not be modeled by linear functions. Other functions are considered.
