There are two scatter plot activities included. First, students walk through and discover the steps to construct, interpret, and model scatter plots given an example with positive correlation. Then, students apply what they discover to gather and organize data, write an equation for a trend line, and draw conclusions about the relationship in a scenario with negative correlation.Students will be able to construct and interpret scatter plots, draw an appropriate trend line and write its…
