1 Objective: Determine the correlation of a scatter plot Lesson 11.4: Scatter PlotsObjective: Determine the correlation of a scatter plot
2 Warm UpWhat is the slope of a line that passes through points with coordinates (-2,-6) and (-4, -5)?a. -2 b. - 1/2 c. 1/2 d. 2Given that the Slope Intercept Formula isy = mx + b, and remembering thatm = the slope, give the slope of the following linear equations:a. y = -3x + 5b. y = 3/5x + 7c. y = 4x - 3What is the slope of the equation3x + 2y = 6?(Hint: Solve for y. This will give you the Slope Intercept Form)
3 Scatter PlotA scatter plot is a graph of a collection of ordered pairs (x,y).The graph looks like a bunch of dots, but some of the graphs are a general shape or move in a general direction.
4 Positive CorrelationIf the x-coordinates and the y-coordinates both increase, then it is POSITIVE CORRELATION.This means that both are going up, and they are related.
5 Positive CorrelationIf you look at the age of a child and the child’s height, you will find that as the child gets older, the child gets taller. Because both are going up, it is positive correlation.Age12345678Height “2531343640414755
6 Negative CorrelationIf the x-coordinates and the y-coordinates have one increasing and one decreasing, then it is NEGATIVE CORRELATION.This means that 1 is going up and 1 is going down, making a downhill graph. This means the two are related as opposites.
7 Negative CorrelationIf you look at the age of your family’s car and its value, you will find as the car gets older, the car is worth less. This is negative correlation.Age of car12345Value$30,000$27,000$23,500$18,700$15,350
8 No CorrelationIf there seems to be no pattern, and the points looked scattered, then it is no correlation.This means the two are not related.
9 No CorrelationIf you look at the size shoe a baseball player wears, and their batting average, you will find that the shoe size does not make the player better or worse, then are not related.
