Using and Interpreting a Mathematical Model
In the last in the sequence of three lessons, students analyze the model and use it to make a prediction and to draw conclusions. They interpret mathematical features of their model (slope and intercepts of the line), and discuss limitations of the model.
- Interpret a scatter plot and line of fit that model temperature and latitude, and explain (orally) limitations of the model.
- Use a mathematical model of bivariate data to make predictions (in writing).
Let’s use a model to make some predictions.
