Scatter Plots and Linear Inequalities
In this lesson, students toss trashballs into the trashcan, recording their shooting percentage from various distances from the basket. With distances measured and percentages figured, students create a scatter plot and a line of best fit to create a linear model of the shooting skills of the class.
Students analyze various data points, first looking at onevariable inequalities and their graphs. Finally, students are led through a discussion to recognize the role that linear inequalities play. This is a great, simple lesson, and inexpensive lesson that addresses nearly 50% of the Algebra 1 EOI, including expressions, one and twovariable inequalities and their graphs, data analysis, scatter plots, and linear equations.
