#### Heights and Weights

Height is dependent on weight—or is it the other way around? Given data from a physicians handbook, individuals compare the height and weight of males and females at different areas. They calculate differences and ratios to assist with...

Lesson Planet

#### Gestation and Longevity

Is the gestation length of an animal a predictor of the average life expectancy of that animal? Learners analyze similar data for more than 50 different animals. They choose a data display and draw conclusions from their graphs.

Lesson Planet

#### The Heat is On: Cause and Effect and Climate

The higher the number of letters in the final word for the National Spelling Bee, the higher the number of people killed by venomous spiders. Obviously, those two facts correlate, but no causation exists. Scholars view data based on...

#### EllipSeeIt: Visualizing Strength and Direction of Correlation

Seeing is believing. Given several bivariate data sets, learners make scatter plots using the online SeeIt program to visualize the correlation. To get a more complete picture of the topic, they research their own data set and perform an...

Lesson Planet

#### Scatter Graphs: Correlation

How does understanding correlate with instruction? A systematic lesson describes the different types of correlation as well as how to determine the strength of the correlation. After watching the video, learners complete practice...

Lesson Planet

#### Scatter Graphs

No scatter brains here—only graphs! A thorough video lesson begins by describing the process of plotting data to create a scatter plot. The instructor goes on to explain how to draw a line of best fit and then use it to make some...

Lesson Planet

#### Correlation Coefficient

Of course, there might be a correlation! Young mathematicians investigate several different data sets, create scatter plots, and determine any correlation. They consider whether a causation exists between any of the variables in question.
