  1. 1. Chapter 8 – Functions and Graphing 1.7 – Scatter Plots
  2. 2. Scatter Plots <ul><li>A scatter plot is a graph that shows the relationship between two sets of data. </li></ul><ul><li>In a scatter plot, two sets of data are graphed as ordered pairs on a coordinate system. </li></ul>Scatter plot from http://www.army.mil/ArmyBTKC/i/focus/cpi_tools_13_S.gif
  3. 3. <ul><li>The dependent variable can only be determined from the value of the independent variable. (The value of the y-coordinate depends on what the value of the x-coordinate is.) </li></ul><ul><li>An independent variable can be assigned any number from the domain of a relation. (This number usually relates to the x-axis.) </li></ul>
  4. 4. If the points appear to suggest a line that slants upward to the right, there is a positive relationship . If the points appear to suggest a line that slants downward to the right, there is a negative relationship . If the points seem to be random, then there is no relationship .
