Analyzing Bivariate Data
In this lesson, students bring everything they have studied in the unit so far to analyze and interpret bivariate data in context (MP4). They create a scatter plot, identify outliers, fit a line, and determine and interpret the slope of the line. They compare actual and predicted values. They reflect on what they have learned about modeling bivariate data.
- Create a scatter plot and draw a line to fit bivariate data, and identify (orally and in writing) outliers that appear in the data.
- Interpret (orally and in writing) features of a scatter plot with a line of fit, including outliers, slope of the line, and clustering.
Let’s analyze data like a pro.
Class data (or data from another group if it fits the classroom culture better) from the second lesson in the unit on arm span and height.
- I can analyze a set of data to determine associations between two variables.
