A complete bivariate analysis task - covering scatter plots, linearisation of data, regression analysis and residual plots. Suitable for VCE Further Mathematics.
Before the Activity
As this is a compilation of many aspects of bivariate data analysis it is assumed students have covered some basic bivariate data analysis including scatter plots and linear regression.
During the Activity
Students can work through the pdf file. Students are not expected to determine which transformation is necessary to linearise the data.
After the Activity
A file called Hit the Brakes (under Statistics and Data Analysis) on the Activities Exchange can be used as a follow up or precursor to this task.
