Scatterplots October 14, 2014

2
Warm-Up Given the following domain and range in set notation, write the equivalent domain and range in algebraic notation and interval notation. { x | x > -2 } { y | y < 8 }

3
Essential Question How does the line of best fit and correlation coefficient help to describe the data in a scatterplot?

4
Definitions scatterplot: a graph of coordinates that will show either positive, negative, or no correlation correlation: a measure of the strength and direction of the relationship between variables in a data set

5
Positive Correlation Negative Correlation No Correlation

6
line of best fit: the line that comes closest to all of the points in a data set line of best fit

7
Correlation coefficient (r): a measure of the strength and direction of the relationship between two variables or data sets -1 ≤ r ≤ 1 Strong Negative Correlation Weak Correlation Strong Positive Correlation 01

8
Calculator Example (1/2 sheet)

9
Reflection How do you tell from the correlation coefficient how strong the correlation is in a set of data?
