Calculating Residuals and Constructing a Residual Plot
Start this lesson by having your class generate their own data and determine the line of best fit relating their height and shoe size. Interpret the meaning of the slope and y-intercept in the context of the problem and use the equation to estimate shoe size based on height.

Your class can learn about positive and negative correlation by exploring the relationship between pairs of quantitative variables. Start with a description of the variables and hypothesize if a strong or weak correlation exists. Make specific data available and have them use scatter plots to help support their claim.

Strike a Pose: Modeling in the Real World (There's Nothing to It!)
Adjust this lesson to fit either beginning or more advanced learners. Build a scatter plot, determine appropriate model (linear, quadratic, exponential), and then extend to evaluate the model with residuals. This problem uses real-world data and challenges one to make predications based on the model.

Line of Best Fit
Students collect data, analyze their data and draw conclusion. In this statistics lesson, students identify different patterns through graphing. They make predictions using these patterns and the line of best fit for the future. They approximate the line of best fit using two points.
