# Learning Objectives & Outcomes

Common Core Math Standards include:
* **8-SP-1:** Represent 2 quantitative variables using a scatterplot
* **8-SP-1**, **8-F-5:** Describe the relationship between 2 variables
* **8-SP-2**, **8-F-4:** Use the movable line on Tuva to fit a straight line for scatter plots that suggest a linear association.
* **8-SP-2:** Assess the model fit informally
* **8-SP-3**, **8-F-4:** Explain the meaning of slope and y-intercept in context
* **8-SP-3:** Use the model to estimate the value of a variable, and to make predictions
* **8-F-2**, **8-F-3**, **8-F-4:** Compare models of 2 functions.
* Acknowledge that a model is a close approximation of the data and that it is not reality.
