Feeling scattered? Get it together and check out Creating, Interpreting and Analyzing Scatter Plots. This activity begins with a review of plotting points on a coordinate grid and then challenges students to identify trends in the data without connecting the points. As they progress through the activity they will explore, identify and interpret independent and dependent variables and their correlation to each other.
