This resource supports math and science standards for grades 610. This assignment is based on the Virginia Standards of Learning A.5: The student will create and use tabular, symbolic, graphical, verbal, and physical representations to analyze a given set of data for the existence of a pattern, determine the domain and range of relations, and identify the relations that are functions. A.16: The student will, given a set of data points, write an equation for a line of best fit and use the equation to make predictions. AFDA.8: The student will design and conduct an experiment/survey. Key concepts include sample size, sampling technique, controlling sources of bias, experimental error data collection, data analysis and reporting. ES.1c: The student will plan and conduct investigations in which scales, diagrams, maps, charts, graphs, tables, and profiles are constructed and interpreted. ES.2a: The student will demonstrate scientific reasoning and logic by analyzing how science explains and predicts the interactions and dynamics of complex Earth systems. Math6.11a: The student will identify the coordinates of a point in a coordinate plane. Math6.11b: The student will graph ordered pairs in a coordinate plane. Math6.14c: The student, given a problem situation, will compare and contrast graphs that present information from the same data set. Math7.12: The student will represent relationships with tables, graphs, rules, and words. Math8.13a: The student will make comparisons, predictions, and inferences, using information displayed in graphs. Math8.13b: The student will construct and analyze scatter plots. Math8.14: The student will make connections between any two representations (tables, graphs, words, and rules) of a given relationship. PS.4: The student will analyze scatterplots to identify and describe the relationship between two variables, using shape; strength of relationship; clusters; positive, negative, or no association; outliers; and influential points. Appropriate technology will be used to generate scatterplots and identify outliers and influential points.
