This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 6, Grade 8. In this activity, students first need to identify if data has a linear association or not and, if it does, what type of slope a linear model of the data would have. For each of the scatter plots, decide whether it makes sense to fit a linear model to the data. If it does, would the graph of the model have a positive slope, a negative slope, or a slope of zero?
