Learning Domain: Statistics and Probability
Standard: Investigate patterns of association in bivariate data
Indicator: Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table. Construct and interpret a two-way table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects. Use relative frequencies calculated for rows or columns to describe possible association between the two variables. For example, collect data from students in your class on whether or not they have a curfew on school nights and whether or not they have assigned chores at home. Is there evidence that those who have a curfew also tend to have chores?
Degree of Alignment:
This task has a strong alignment to 8.SP.4. It asks students to survey and collect data from their peers to see if there is a correlation between those who play a sport and those who plan an instrument. Students organize their data in a table and are asked to create a graph to display the data. This resource is a task, so the teacher would need to develop a lesson around it.
