In this Algebra I/Algebra II worksheet, young scholars determine the line of best fit for a scatter plot and use the information to make predictions involving interpolation or extrapolation. The one page worksheet contains one multiple choice question. Answers are included.
In this matrices for data worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 29 various types of problems that include using matrices to illustrate data. First, they determine the sum, difference and scalar product for each matrices shown. Then, students write the equation of the line of best fit that models the data in the table. They also find the measures of central tendency and range for data.
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.
Middle and high schoolers explore the concept of linear modelling. In this linear modelling lesson, pupils find the line of best fit for life expectancy data of Canadians. They compare life expectancies of men and women, and find the point of intersection when males and females have the same life expectancy.
In this lesson, rubber bands are used as bungee cords to predict a thrilling, but safe, jump for Barbie. Algebra learners collect data, build a scatter plot, build a linear prediction equation to model a final jump. There a number of similiar lessons to this on the web, this is one of the most complete. Note: All of the rubber bands need to be the same size, and Barbie could easily be replaced with a Beanie Baby-type doll.
