#### Finance: Depreciation (Double Declining)

Of particular interest to a group of business and finance pupils, this lesson explores depreciation of automobile values by comparing the double declining balance to the straight line method. Mostly this is done through a slide...

Lesson Planet

#### Is It or Isn't It Proportional

How can you tell if number relationships are proportional? Mathematicians investigate proportional relationships. They compare and contrast functions and graphs to determine the characteristics of proportional relationships, as well as...

Lesson Planet

#### Least-Squares Regression

Less is best when looking at residuals. Scholars use an interactive to informally fit a linear regression line to data on a scatter plot. The interactive provides a correct best fit line with residuals and correlation coefficient to...

Lesson Planet

#### Using Models to Make Predictions

The future lies in mathematics. Given a linear equation that models a context, scholars use the model to predict future values. They must perform substitution to determine the required output value.

Lesson Planet

#### Smarter Balanced Sample Items: 8th Grade Math – Target J

Look at patterns in bivariate data. Eight sample items illustrate the eighth grade statistics and probability standards. The Smarter Balanced Sample multiple-choice items focus on numerical and categorical bivariate data. The slide show...

#### Scatter It! (Using Census Results to Help Predict Melissa’s Height)

Pupils use the provided census data to guess the future height of a child. They organize and plot the data, solve for the line of best fit, and determine the likely height and range for a specific age.

Lesson Planet

#### Scatter It! (Predict Billy’s Height)

How do doctors predict a child's future height? Scholars use one case study to determine the height of a child two years into the future. They graph the given data, determine the line of best fit, and use that to estimate the height in...

Lesson Planet

#### What Fits?

The bounce of a golf ball changes the result in golf, mini golf—and a great math activity. Scholars graph the height of golf ball bounces before finding a line of best fit. They analyze their own data and the results of others to better...

#### Graphit

No graphing calculator? No worries, there's an app for that! Young mathematicians use an app to graph functions. In addition, they can also plot data points.

Lesson Planet

#### Data Flyer

Fit functions to data by using an interactive app. Individuals plot a scatter plot and then fit lines of best fit and regression curves to the data. The use of an app gives learners the opportunity to try out different functions to see...

Lesson Planet

#### Ordered Simple Plot

Open your imagination to make algebra-inspired creations. An interactive lesson has scholars graph images from a set of parameters. Users can practice minimum values, maximum values, and scale as well as key features.

Lesson Planet

#### Height Scatterplot Lab

Don't just dip your toe in ... place a foot into the investigation of heights. The class collects the foot length and height of each member before creating a scatter plot of the data and estimating a best fit line. Using a graphing...

Lesson Planet

#### Fitting Lines to Data

Scatter the TV sales over weeks. Pupils create a scatter plot to display the number of TV sales over a period of several weeks. The interactive allows class members to create two lines of best fit. Then they determine which line fits...

Lesson Planet

#### Line of Best Fit

Pupils work through a guided activity on fitting a linear equation to a set of data by entering the data into a calculator and trying to envision a line of best fit. They then have the calculator determine the least-squares line and...

Lesson Planet

#### Linear Curve of Best Fit

Is foot length to forearm length a linear association? The class collects data of fellow scholars' foot length and the length of their forearms. They plot the data and find a line of best fit. Using that line, they make predictions of...

Lesson Planet

#### Linear Modeling

An inquiry-based algebra lesson explores real-world applications of linear functions. Scholars investigate four different situations that can be modeled by linear functions, identifying the rate of change, as well as the strength and...
