This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 6, Grade 8. In this activity students create another scatter plot to analyze the data they collected about their classmates in a previous lesson. A suggested linear model is compared to the data and a particular point is identified in both the scatter plot and data table. Although the scatter plots are left to students to organize, the only linear model considered is y = x which is symmetric when switching which variable is represented on each axis. If possible, identify any groups who have axes switched to bring up in the discussion.
