The student applies the mathematical process standards to formulate statistical relationships and evaluate their reasonableness based on real-world data. The student is expected to:

(A)  calculate, using technology, the correlation coefficient between two quantitative variables and interpret this quantity as a measure of the strength of the linear association;

(B)  compare and contrast association and causation in real-world problems; and

(C)  write, with and without technology, linear functions that provide a reasonable fit to data to estimate solutions and make predictions for real-world problems.
