New Review Analyzing Scatter Plots
Scatter plots tell a story about the data — you just need to be able to read it! Building from the previous lesson in the series where learners created scatter plots, they now learn how to find associations in those scatter plots. They...

Space Shuttle Ascent: Altitude vs. Time
How long did it take to get to that altitude? Using a Google Earth file, groups explore a space shuttle launch. Using a calculator, groups determine the function that models the altitude/time data from an actual launch. With the model in...

New Review Statistics-Investigate Patterns of Association in Bivariate Data
Young mathematicians construct and analyze patterns of association in bivariate data using scatter plots and linear models. The sixth chapter of a 10-part eighth grade workbook series then prompts class members to construct and interpret...
