Two Variable Graphing Definitions.
a value that doesn't depend on any others (it's just measured)
first number plotted on x axis, second # plotted on y axis
any graph of a set of points
a value that depends or changes based on another (the one you want to predict)
estimate a point on the line between given data points
a pattern in data points on a graph that can be drawn as a straight line
the point where the axes intersect
shows there is a break in the measurements on either axis
horizontal line at bottom of the graph labelled with name and measurements of the independent variable
as independent variables increase, the dependent variables decreases graph goes down and to the right
No pattern appears in the data-no line of best fit can be drawn because there is no relationship between the variables
a pattern in data points on a graph that can be drrawn as a curved line
words at the top of a graph that identify the two variables and/or their relationship
estimate a point on the line after extending it beyond the given points
a pattern in the data between the two variables (increasing or decreasing)
a piece of data that's bery different fromt the others
Line of Best Fit
smooth line drawn near or through points on a graph that shows a trend
the difference between consecutive y values
as independent variable increases, the dependent variables also increases-graph goes up and to the right
vertical line at side of graph labelled with name and mearurements of the dependent variable
