1 Lesson 11.4: Scatter Plots Standards: M7D1f & M7A3a & c Objective: To construct a scatter plot and determine the relationship between two variables.
2 Scatter PlotA scatter plot is a graph of plotted points that shows if there is a relationship between two sets of data or two variables.The graph looks like a bunch of dots, but some of the graphs have a general shape or move in a general direction.
3 This vertical line is called the y-axis. THE COORDINATE PLANEyThis vertical line is called the y-axis.
4 This horizontal line is called the x-axis. THE COORDINATE PLANEy54321-1-2-3-4-5This horizontal line is called the x-axis.x-5-4-3-2-112345
5 The x-axis and y-axis separate the coordinate plane into 4 parts. 54321-1-2-3-4-5The x-axis and y-axis separate the coordinate plane into 4 parts.x-5-4-3-2-112345This point in the middle of the x-axis and y-axis is called the origin.
6 These parts are called Quadrants. THE COORDINATE PLANEy54321-1-2-3-4-5Quadrant IIQuadrant IThese parts are called Quadrants.x-5-4-3-2-112345Quadrant IIIQuadrant IV
7 y x THE COORDINATE PLANE ( 1 , 3 ) 54321-1-2-3-4-5To locate a point anywhere on the grid, you need an ordered pair.An ordered pair is a pair of numbers used to locate points on a grid.x-5-4-3-2-112345The FIRST number is called the X- coordinate.( 1 , 3 )The SECOND number is called the Y- coordinate.

10 Positive CorrelationIf the x-coordinates and the y-coordinates both increase, then the two variables are said to have a POSITIVE CORRELATION.This means that both are going up, and they are related.
11 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.Can you think of any other examples ofvariables with a positive relationship?Age12345678Height “2531343640414755
12 Negative CorrelationIf the x-coordinates and the y-coordinates have one increasing and one decreasing, then the two variables are said to have a 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.
13 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.Can you think of anything else witha negative relationship?Age of car12345Value$30,000$27,000$23,500$18,700$15,350
14 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.
15 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.
