CCRS – 8.SP.4

Investigate patterns of association in bivariate data.

Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table. Construct and interpret a two-way table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects. Use relative frequencies calculated for rows or columns to describe possible association between the two variables. For example, collect data from students in your class on whether or not they like to cook and whether they participate actively in a sport. Is there evidence that those who like to cook also tend to play sports? (8.SP.4) [Also see S.ID.5]
