Lesson 4
Interpret This, Interpret That
These materials, when encountered before Algebra 1, Unit 3, Lesson 4 support success in that lesson.
Lesson Narrative
The mathematical purpose of this lesson is for students to recall how to interpret a scatter plot, and how to interpret slope and \(y\)intercept in a given linear model. This connects to previous work because students created graphs from equations written in slopeintercept form in grade 8. They have also used graphs of linear functions to create equations in slopeintercept form, and to interpret a given situation. In the associated Algebra 1 lesson, students create scatter plots and use a linear model to predict future outcomes. Students reason abstractly and quantitatively (MP2) when they use graphs to interpret a given model in a situation.
