Big Ideas: Data can be represented using tables, charts, and graphs Scatterplots help reveal associations in quantitative bivariate data. This lesson builds on student work in the 8th grade. In the 8th grade, students created scatter plots and described patterns seen in plots. This lesson will focus on looking at linear associations in preparation of formally fitting a line to data which seems to have a linear pattern. Vocabulary: bivariate, scatter plot, independent variable, dependent variable, explanatory variable, response variable, positive association, negative association, linear association, non-linear association, outlier Special Materials: Teacher Salary and Education Spending Data Sheet
