3.0
Is skilled at constructing and interpreting scatter plots between two sets of linked data. Is skilled at solving problems using the linear model to interpret the slope and intercept.
You are able to construct and interpret scatter plots between two sets of linked data (for example, height and weight). Solve bivariate measurement problems by using the linear model and interpret the slope and intercept.
2.0
Knows the terms: scatter plot, bivariate measurement, slope, intercept, correlation coefficient, linear fit, linear models. Understands straight lines can be used to represent the relationships between quantitative variables.
You are able to define and give examples of the terms: scatter plot, bivariate measurement, slope, intercept, correlation coefficient, linear fit and linear models. You are able to show how straight lines can be used to represent the relationships between two quantitative variable.

You can tell me the definitions with my help.

Note Sheet:

Level 2

A scatter plot is one way we can convey data. The following link will help you understand scatter plots.
Scatter Plots

Another way data is shown is bivariate measurement, this link will help you understand bivariate measurement.
Understanding Bivariate Measurement

We have talked about slope before, but I would still like you to take a look at this refresher.
Understanding Slope

This link will give you definitions and examples of y and x intercepts.
Understanding Intercepts

Correlation coefficient is briefly explained in this link.
Correlation Coefficient

This link relates to other information we have been going through.
Understanding Linear Fit

Understanding what a linear model is.
Linear Model
