Instructional Ideas

  • Use the worksheets as part of a unit on bivariate data and patterns of association
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires a stopwatch for parts of the chapter
  • Worksheets include coordinate grids for scatter plots, so you do not need to provide graph paper
Pros

  • Tongue twisters are engaging for pupils of all levels
  • Symbols indicate where to look for mathematical practices throughout the chapter
Cons

  • Unlike other chapters in the workbook, the table of contents does not provide links to directly access each lesson
