Minnesota Academic Standards
8.2.2. Recognize linear functions in real world and mathematical situations; represent linear functions and other functions with tables, verbal descriptions, symbols and graphs; solve problems involving these functions and explain results in the original context.
22.214.171.124. Identify graphical properties of linear functions including slopes and intercepts. Know that the slope equals the rate of change, and that the y-intercept is zero when the function represents a proportional relationship.
MN.8.4. Data Analysis & Probability
8.4.1. Interpret data using scatterplots and approximate lines of best fit. Use lines of best fit to draw conclusions about data.
126.96.36.199. Collect, display and interpret data using scatterplots. Use the shape of the scatterplot to informally estimate a line of best fit and determine an equation for the line. Use appropriate titles, labels and units. Know how to use graphing technology to display scatterplots and corresponding lines of best fit.
188.8.131.52. Use a line of best fit to make statements about approximate rate of change and to make predictions about values not in the original data set.
