• Week of 4/20 through 4/26

    We will be continuing our Unit on Statistics and Analyzing Data. Our focus this week will be on bivariate quantitative data, in which Scatter Plots are used. You will learn how to read and create a scatter plot, association and correlation, writing and using trend lines, and residuals. You will be given notes and optional videos, an electronic interactive worksheet, and you will need to respond to discussion questions on Google Classroom. Google Classroom will be the only website used for assignments this week. 

     

    1.)  Scatter Plot Notes: Click on the link to access the notes and read over them. You DO NOT have to print these out, just use your math notebook. Take your time in making sense of the notes. Complete this in your math notebook along with the other notes you will have taken from mine. Again, I do not expect you to copy every little thing from my notes. Reword, reorganize, and summarize the information you did not know beforehand. I have provided a video of my own in which I go over the notes. There are also supplemental videos to watch if necessary.

    2.) CW25 Scatter Plot Movie Ticket Activity: Click the link to access the worksheet. It can be downloaded, printed, or you can use your own paper for this assignment. Follow the directions and submit it on Google Classroom or via email. 

     

    3.) Blood Pressure Discussion Questions: A situation with discussion questions will be posted on Google Classroom. You must respond to the discussion by collaborating with others and answering all of the questions posted. Even if you get the same answer as another student, you should state why you think that answer is correct. If you disagree with someone, please be respectful and politely respond to them, just like you would in the classroom. Please comment before the end of the week. You should be making multiple posts, one answering all of the questions and other posts responding to some of the other students' answers.
