Review scatter plots briefly
 A scatter plot is a type of graph which shows the relationship, or correlation, between two variables. One variable is on the x axis and the other is on the y axis.
 The types of questions that might be answered with a scatter plot include:
 What is the relationship between variable # 1 and variable # 2?
 Does one variable go up when the other variable goes down?
 Does one variable go up when the other variable goes up?
 Is there a correlation between the two variables?
 Is there a positive, negative or no relationship between the variables?
 Scatter plots are very useful for understanding the correlation between two variables.
Plan your Scatter plot
 What variable will be on the xaxis?
 What variable will be on the yaxis?
 What title will you use?
 How many squares of the graph paper will you use for each unit on the xaxis?
 How many squares of the graph paper will you use for each unit on the yaxis?
