The Algebra 1 Teacher's guide to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
Modeling Linear Data
Common Core Says...
The high school standards call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges; they prepare students to think and reason mathematically.

S.ID.6.a Fit a function to the data; use functions fitted to data to solve problems in the context of the data. Use given functions or choose a function suggested by the context. Emphasize linear and exponential models.
S.ID.6.b Informally assess the fit of a function by plotting and analyzing residuals.
S.ID.6.c Fit a linear function for a scatter plot that suggests a linear association.
S.ID.7 Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.
S.ID.8 Compute (using technology) and interpret the correlation coefficient of a linear fit.
S.ID.9 Distinguish between correlation and causation.
