Correlation and regression for Core Maths
A KS5 resource for the AQA Level 3 Certificate in Mathematical Studies. Students are given a table of the twelve most common bird species in the UK, comparing their length and their wingspan. They are then given eight true/false questions which test the understanding of scatter graphs, correlation, the product-moment correlation coefficient and the equation of the line of regression in the form y=a+bx. The extension questions ask students to correct any false statements and to use the correct regression equation.
