Mathematical Objectives:
 Students will create scatter plots
 Students will create twoway tables
 Students will find a line of best fit to predict information from their scatter plot
 Students will find relative frequency to explain what the dada means
8^{th} Grade Standards:
8.SP.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.4: Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a twoway table. Construct and interpret a twoway table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects.

Description

Day 1


0:005:00

Warmup: Students will answer two question in CPS that will review what we have been learning about scatter plots and twoway tables

5:0010:00

Directions and examples. I will provide students with directions about the activity and show them one example of what their end result should be.
 Students will be organized into 5 groups.
 Students will create 2 surveys (One scatter plot and one twoway table) in google forms. They will set their survey up on an iPad where students will be able to walk around and complete each otherâ€™s survey.
 Students will pull their results and organize them into either a table or graph
 Students will find the line of best fit of their data to make predictions for the scatter plot
 Students will find the relative frequency of their twoway table and explain what the results mean.

10:0030:00

Students will create their surveys and get have their forms pulled up on the computer

300060:00

Students will walk around and complete the surveys for their peers

Day 2


0:005:00

Students will get their technology out and pull up their results from their surveys

5:0030:00

Students will organize their data into the scatter plot and the twoway table

30:0050:00

Students will find the line of best fit and the relative frequencies for their data

50:0060:00

Each group will have 2 minutes to present their data/findings to the class.
