Shoe Size vs Height

Published on 08/24/2005

Activity Overview

Students will be sent empty lists and need to send back their shoe size and height in inches. TI-Navigator™ will compile all lists and send compiled list to students. Students will then use the compiled list to make scatterplot and find lines of regression.

Before the Activity

If you are using the TI-Navigator System with the TI-73 you will need the attached .pdf file.
Students must have an idea of finding lines of best fit and making scatterplots by hand if not already using the calculator. This can be used as an assessment for linear regressions or as a teaching tool for doing them on the calculator. Read Shoe vs Height.doc

During the Activity

After the Activity

  • As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
