Common Core Aligned Resources for 8.SP.A.2
Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line.

Math TODAY for TI-Navigator System - Humidity Makes Air Feel Even Hotter ? Part II
8th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Learners explore quadratic and cubic functions that will model the relationship between air temperature and heat index at fixed relative humidity values. They also make generalizations and apply the findings using their TI-83 Plus or...
Vernier - A Speedy Slide with EasyData™ App and CBR 2™
6th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Mathematicians use a CBR 2™ motion detector to determine their speed or velocity going down a playground slide. They also experiment with different ways to increase their speed going down the slide. Finally, students complete the Student...
Creating Linear Models for Data 3
8th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Scholars solve 24 various types of problems that include defining Hooke's Law, conducting an experiment, and exploring rate of change. They create a scatter plot to show the data for the number and the distance from the table to the top....
Four Activities Using Straight Line Graphs
8th - 10th CCSS: Adaptable
This math packet includes four different activities which puts linear equations and line of best fit in the context of real world applications. Each activity uses a different linear math modeling equation and asks the learners to...
Linear Relationships: Tables, Equations, and Graphs
7th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Pupils explore the concept of linear relationships. They discuss real-world examples of independent and dependent relationships. In addition, they use tables, graphs, and equations to represent linear relationships. They also use ordered...
Analyzing the Data—Shedding Light on the Subject
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Experiments are worthless if you can't analyze data. Individuals analyze their water depth vs. light intensity data in different ways. They investigate families of functions using an interactive, use difference equations, and linearize...
How Should I Move?—Movement with Functions
8th - 11th CCSS: Designed
Develop rules for functional movements. Using a motion detector, groups work to recreate a graph by walking in front of the detector. As they make graphs, the teams learn about linear, exponential, quadratic, and piecewise graphs. They...
Guidance Counselors: Working with Scatter Plots
8th - 10th CCSS: Designed
Scatter plots are a great way to connect data with a visual model. Learners look at wages earned depending on education level and determine if there is a correlation between the two. The worksheet includes short answers they must discuss...
Predicting the Future with Best-fit Lines
8th - 10th CCSS: Designed
What career will actually use this math? The activity has pupils determine a best-fit line for given data. Using their best-fit line, they then make predictions before discussing as a class what careers might use scatter plots and...
