HES Activity 1.4 Differentiation

  • Complete step #7, steps 1-5 for drawing trend lines together as a class.
  • Have students discuss questions in pairs or groups first before sharing responses with the rest of the class.

For more advanced math students, consider having them constructing the trend line from the scatter plot using point-slope form. This video includes a short tutorial: https://learnzillion.com/lessons/250-write-a-trend-line-from-a-scatter-plot and https://learnzillion.com/resources/51255

Extending the Learning

Have students find data sets online that they can transform into scatter plots and then calculate the trend.
