    Algebra students analyze quarterback salaries in a capstone project implementing statistics.
    Many teachers of required secondary school mathematics classes are introducing statistics and probability topics traditionally relegated to college or AP Statistics courses. As a result, they need guidance in preparing lesson plans and orchestrating effective classroom discussions. In this article, we will describe the students’ learning and the associated challenges related to the topics of correlation and linear regression. Our intent in sharing the results of one Algebra 2 class is to equip teachers with insight into relevant experiences, identify common misconceptions, and provide recommendations related to selecting and implementing activities.
