Scatter Plots and Organizing Data

December 18, 2012

The Algebra I students just concluded their chapter on scatter plots and organizing data.  They studied correlations, which relates the two different data points that they are analyzing.  To assist the students in the understanding of this concept they spent some time evaluating real life data like the weather trends, agriculture prices, tourism trends, sport statistics, and many more.  The students really enjoyed seeing how the math they were learning on an every day basis really does apply to situations in the real world.
