Statistics

Describing Bivariate Data

In these lessons, students investigate the relationship between two quantitative variables by analyzing scatterplots, outliers and influential points, correlation coefficients, and the least-squares regression line. Students create and describe graphs and identify and use the important characteristics of the graphs to better understand the relationship between the variables.
