In this lesson, students use data collected comparing height and arm span and create a scatter plot from the bivariate data. In the first section, How Square Can You Be?, students look at measurement comparisons between the height and arm span of 24 people. The second section, Analyzing the Differences, asks students to look at the data again to answer questions about proportion of height to arm span, such as who is square and who is rectangular. The third section, Using a Scatter Plot, has students analyze the same data on a scatter plot with the line representing Height = Arm Span. There are questions for student to answer independently, but hints are provided. Less
