SPACE SHUTTLE ASCENT: MASS VS. TIME

Students will be asked to create scatter plots and find linear regression equations using mission data on the mass of the space shuttle during the first two minutes of the ascent phase.

Students will

- create scatterplots from a data table;
- determine correlation and interpret its meaning;
- find linear regression equations;
- find the slope and y-intercept from a linear equation; and
- communicate the meanings of slope and y-intercept as they relate to a real-world problem.
