This activity is a fun way to work with scatter plots in a realistic situation. Students will compare the fat and calories in items from a fictional fast food restaurant by creating a scatter plot. They will also draw a line of best fit, approximate the slope of that line, and make predictions based on the line.Included:*Drive-Thru Scatterplots Activity*Answer KeyPlease leave feedback with any suggestions for improvements! :)

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.
