can explain the yintercept of a linear model in context
can use a trend line and line of best fit to make predictions
The student exhibits no major errors or omissions.
Use the following table to estimate the heart rate prior to jogging and after jogging for 16 minutes. Explain why your answer makes sense.
2.5
The student demonstrates no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) and partial knowledge of the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
2.0
There are no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes as the student: The student can:
can recognize and recall terminology such as:
equation, slope, yintercept
can graph a linear model, but can not interpret the results
However, the student exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes.

1.5
The student demonstrates partial knowledge of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) but exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and procedures (Score 3.0 content).
1.0
With help, the student demonstrates a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) and some of the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).

0.5
With help, the student demonstrates a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) but not the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
