__Common Core Standards__

8.SP.A.1

Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association.

8.SP.A.2

Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line.

8.SP.A.3

Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept.

8.SP.A.4

Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table. Construct and interpret a two-way table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects. Use relative frequencies calculated for rows or columns to describe possible association between the two variables.

__Student Objectives__

Given a data table, I can construct a corresponding scatterplot.

Given a scatter plot, I can identify the association between the variables as negative, positive, or none.

Given a scatter plot, I can draw a line of best fit to show the trend of the data and make predictions.

Given a scatter plot, I can use a trend line to make predictions about future data points.

Given a scatter plot or data set, I can identify outliers.

Students will copy the vocabulary term "outlier" and its corresponding definition into their math journal.

__Lesson__(Scatter Plot Jeopardy)

1. Whole class: go over bellwork

2. Guided practice: students will identify outliers when given data and/or scatter plots.

3. Students will be divided into 3 teams to play Scatter Plot Jeopardy.

__Closing__

Students will rate their understanding of scatter plots.

__Homework__

Journals and binders will be collected and graded on Thursday.

There will be an end-of-year test on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 26 and May 27.
