Lesson Plan: Conceptualizing Correlation and Regression Equations
Go to: http://www.teacherlink.org/.../home.html (opens a new window)
Description: This activity uses the dynamic environment in Fathom to help students conceptualize a formula used for the correlation coefficient and regression equation. Students will gain a deeper conceptual understanding of the computation of the correlation coefficient, linear regression, and the effects of outliers on these computations. Students will discuss the benefits and drawbacks for using technology tools to develop both conceptual and procedural understanding of statistical techniques. Students will also experience and discuss the learning of correlation and regression from a conceptual and contextual approach.
