## Standards

The following content standards align to the lessons in this module.

## A Good Enough Fit?

**Key Common Core State Standards:**

S.ID.6: Represent data on two quantitative variables on a scatter plot and describe how the variables are related.

- Fit a function to the data; use functions fitted to data to solve problems in the context of the data.
- Informally assess the fit of a function by plotting and analyzing residuals.
- Fit a linear function for a scatter plot that suggests a linear association.

S.ID.7: Interpret the slope (rate of change) and intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.

S.ID.8: Compute (using technology) and interpret the correlation coefficient of a linear fit.

**Supporting Common Core State Standards:**

F.IF.4: For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.

F.LE.1: Distinguish between situations that can be modeled with linear functions and with exponential functions.

**Standards for Mathematical Practices:**

MP.1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

MP.2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

MP.3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

MP.4: Model with mathematics.

MP.5: Use appropriate tools strategically.

MP.6: Attend to precision.

## Blame It On the Rain

**Key Common Core State Standards:**

S.ID.9: Distinguish between correlation and causation.
