# Construct And Interpret Scatter Plots Math Games

4 games

In this series of games, your students will learn to construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. The Construct And Interpret Scatter Plots learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 8.SP.A.1 as written in the common core national math standards.

## Concepts Covered

Graph paired measurements that may be associated with a scatter plot. Look for a positive or negative trend in the cloud of points. Recognize a nonlinear pattern (curved pattern). Recognize a strong association (most of the points correspond by increasing or decreasing in correspondence with the associated values) or weak association (some of the points correspond by increasing or decreasing in correspondence with the associated values of the variables).

Describe groups of points as clusters. Describe points that are far off the trending points as outliers. If the points generally trend in a linear fashion (trend in a straight line) they are said to have a linear association. Interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data.
