### We found 211 resources with the concept correlation

Lesson Planet

#### Sleep and Reading

Does sleeping longer cause lower reading scores? The assessment presents findings of study between amount of sleep and scores on a reading exam. Pupils interpret the correlation coefficient in the context of the study and determine if...

Lesson Planet

#### Correlation or Causation: That Is The Question

Did I cause that? The lesson provides definitions of correlation and causation along with types of causation. Within the presentation, pupils analyze erroneous conclusions based upon correlation. Groups then develop a newscast based upon...

Lesson Planet

#### Evaluate Relations with Scatter Plots: Regression and Correlation

Introduce the concept of a correlation coefficient using an interactive lesson. Learners begin by manipulating a correlation coefficient and watching a graph change to represent the new value. Questions help strengthen their...

Lesson Planet

#### Basketball—It's a Tall Man's Sport, or Is It?

Does height make a difference with scoring? Using data of NBA players, pupils make a scatter plot of height and free throw percentage. They use technology to find a regression line and to calculate the correlation coefficient before...

Lesson Planet

#### A Day At The Park

What difference does temperature make on the number of sales? Using data on temperature and the amount of sales, scholars create a scatter plot and draw a line of best fit. They use the equation of the line of best fit to predict sales.

Lesson Planet

#### "R" You Ready to Study Correlation?

Remove the confounding relationship between correlation and causation. The resource provides instructional guidance to help classmates explore the relationship between correlation and causation. Pupils realize that there are confounding...

Lesson Planet

#### Geogebra: Residuals and Linear Regression

If the line fits, use it. Using a Geogebra interactive, pupils plot points and try to find the best fit line. They assess the linear fit by analyzing residuals. A radio button allows participants to show the regression line and the...

Lesson Planet

#### Listing All Possible Causal Relationships

Does A cause B, or does B causes A? Pupils analyze the possible causal relationships between two variables with a high correlation coefficient. The scholars describe the three possible relationships and determine whether the correlation...

Lesson Planet

#### July December Correlation

Find out the association between temperatures in July and temperatures in December. Provided with the average temperatures in July and December for a five year-period, pupils calculate the correlation coefficient using technology. The...

Lesson Planet

#### How Big Are Feet?

Are people with larger feet taller? Using given data, individuals calculate the correlation coefficient between foot length and height. Interpretation of this value answers the opening question.

Lesson Planet

#### Does Studying Pay?

Caution: Correlation does not mean causation. Scholars investigate data given as a table to determine if there is a relationship between number of hours studied and the average score of a final exam.

Lesson Planet

#### Correlation Order

What does the correlation coefficient really tell us about the relationship between two things? Pupils examine graphed variables and estimate their correlation coefficients in a brief formative assessment. After determining the...

Lesson Planet

#### Modeling Data

Is there a better way to display data to analyze it? Pupils represent data in a variety of ways using number lines, coordinate graphs, and tables. They determine that certain displays work with different types of data and use two-way...

Lesson Planet

#### Statistical Analysis of Flexible Circuits

Scholars connect statistical analysis with flexible electric circuits. They first learn about flexible circuits and their applications through a PowerPoint presentation and then consider how the fabrication process for these circuits...

Lesson Planet

#### Scatterplots

Math is all fun and games with this activity! Learners use an activity designed around hula hoops to collect data. They create scatter plots with their data and then analyze the graphs for correlation.

Lesson Planet

#### How Tall and How Many?

Is there a relationship between height and the number of siblings? Classmates collect data on their heights and numbers of brothers and sisters. They apply statistical methods to determine if such a relationship exists.

Lesson Planet

#### You and Michael

Investigate the relationship between height and arm span. Young statisticians measure the heights and arm spans of each class member and create a scatter plot using the data. They draw a line of best fit and use its slope to explain the...

Lesson Planet

#### Scatter Graphs

Make an estimate by getting in line. The class works with scatter plots and lines of best fit to make an estimate for given values. Pupils determine whether there is a positive or negative correlation and draw a best-fit line. Using the...

Lesson Planet

#### Compact-Ness

Creating a definition may be easier than it sounds! Give your classes experience creating their own definition. Scholars examine the meaning of the compact-ness of a scatter plot and create their own definitions based on measurements.

#### End-of-Module Assessment Task: Grade 8 Module 6

Test your knowledge of linear functions and models. The last installment of a 16-part module is an end-of-module assessment task. Pupils solve multi-part problems on bivariate data based on real-world situations to review concepts from...

EngageNY

#### Mid-Module Assessment Task: Grade 8 Module 6

Make sure pupils have the skills to move on to the second half of the module with a mid-module assessment task. The formative assessment instrument checks student learning before moving on to the rest of the lessons in the unit.

EngageNY

#### Informally Fitting a Line

Discover how trend lines can be useful in understanding relationships between variables with a lesson that covers how to informally fit a trend line to model a relationship given in a scatter plot. Scholars use the trend line to make...

EngageNY

#### Patterns in Scatter Plots

Class members investigate relationships between two variables in the seventh installment of a 16-part module that teaches scholars how to find and describe patterns in scatter plots. Young mathematicians consider linear/nonlinear...

EngageNY

#### Scatter Plots

Scholars learn to create scatter plots and investigate any relationships that exists between the variables with a lesson that also show them that statistical relationships do not necessarily indicate a cause-and-effect relationship.
