Murder in the First Degree - The Death of Mr. Spud
Secondary learners investigate exponential functions in a real-world scenario. They collect data on the temperature of a cooling baked potato, enter the data into lists, and graph the data using a scatter plot before finding an exponential function that models the data.

What is the Relationship?
When comparing data, it either has a positive or negative relationship, or no relationship at all. Let your learners pick their own topics for research and display their data on a scatter plot to show the relationships. The activity guides the instructor through the task and provides a variety of follow-up questions to encourage discussion on the outcome of the relationships.

da Vinci: Body Proportion Theories
Middle schoolers investigate the validity of da Vinci's proportion theory by recording human measurements on scatter plots. In groups of three, they record each other's height and wingspan to create a Powerpoint presentation, chart, or plot demonstrating their conclusions.

Finding Linear Models Part III
Explore linear functions! In this Algebra I lesson, mathematicians graph data in a scatter plot and use a graphing calculator to find a linear regression and/or a median-median line. They use the model to make predictions.

Patterns & Equations
Determine a constant of a linear, quadratic, and exponential equation. By making a scatter plot of the given equation, they describe its shape and pattern. After graphing several equations, groups discuss common ratios between equations.

How Do You Use a Scatter Plot to Find a Negative Correlation?
Organize your data on a graph. Use the data, pair them up as coordinate pairs, then graph them, resulting in a scatter plot. But how, you ask? Watch this tutorial to learn the step-by-step process needed to draw a scatter plot and determine the data has a correlation.

How Do You Use a Scatter Plot to Find a Positive Correlation?
You can use a scatter plot to determine if there is a positive, negative, or no correlation between the given data. After graphing data you need to find a line of fit, a line that best represents the data you've graphed. It will be the line of slope you'll look at to determine the correlation.

What's a Scatter Plot?
Scatter plots refer to a graph of given data. Scatter plots offer a way to look at information and allows the observer to analyze and interpret possible meanings and trends of the given data. Predictions can often be made based on the patterns that appear on the graph.

Analyzing Patterns in Residuals
Using a regression applet, your class can predict and explore the shape of the residuals of linear and non-linear data. Then through discussion, these learners can generate rules on how to analyze residual plots to recognize non-linear data.

Math TODAY for TI-Navigator System - Is Leisure Time Really Shrinking?
High schoolers organize data from the USA TODAY Snapshot, "Is leisure time really shrinking?" into two scatter plots and determine the quadratic model for each scatter plot. They determine if these graphs intersect and learn the concept of extrapolation by expanding the viewing window to find the intersection.

Linear Regression and Correlation
Learners explore scatter plots. In this linear regression lesson, groups of pupils graph scatter plots and then find the line of best fit. They identify outliers and explain the correlation. Each group summarizes and shares their findings with the class.

Maximizing Area, Minimizing Perimeter
Young mathematicians explore the concept of maximizing area and minimizing perimeter in this TI-Nspire lesson. This lesson is broken up into two parts. In the first, one tries to maximize the area while keeping the perimeter constant. In the second, one tries to minimize the perimeter with a fixed area.

Transformations With Lists
Young scholars explore the concept of transformations. In this transformations lesson, students enter data into lists and make a scatter plot of points. Young scholars use lists to transform the data points by shifting the points, left and right, or up and down.
