Everybody is a Genius: Scatter Plots & Correlation
This lesson/assessment provides an opportunity for students to use their mathematical abilities -- namely, their knowledge of scatter plots and linear regression lines -- to solve a mystery. The story lays out the scene of the crime, and students must then collect data from their peers and adults around the school, use this data to make a scatter plot, and use their scatter plot to predict who the thief is.
