## SOCR May 2008 Event - Display and compare data to make predictions and formulate conclusions

## Display data using tables, scatter plots, and circle graphs

## Compare two similar sets of data on the same graph

## Compare two different kinds of graphs representing the same set of data

- Compare the Line Plots and the Scatter Plots for the Human heights and weights dataset.

## Propose and justify inferences and predictions based on data

Refer to the Line Plots and the Scatter Plots for the Human heights and weights dataset.

- Is it likely that someone is 80 inches tall if his/her weight is only 100 pounds?
- What is a reasonable height in inches for someone who is 130 pounds in weight (notice that this is the mean weight of an individual, so we may expect the mean height (68.4 in) to be a reasonable estimate)?
