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.

-as stated under Key Points in Mathematics CCSS

Standards for Mathematical Practice

• 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
• 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
• 4. Model with mathematics
• 5. Use appropriate tools strategically
• Big Picture Lesson Planning for the Common Core

Week #8Data to Functions

• Fit a Function to Data to Solve Problems (S.ID.6.a, b, c)
• Find a line of best fit
• Predict future events given a function

Week #9Understanding Functions with Technology

• Interpret the correlation coefficient of a linear function using technology (S.ID.7 S.ID.8)

Week #10Cause and Effect

• Correlation vs. Causation (S.ID.9)

Common Core Standards

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.
