An association is linear when there is no strong curvature present in the scatterplot.
The correlation is close to [r = 0], when the pattern slopes does not slope upwards nor downwards.
More precisely, an association that is linear with a correlation coefficient close to 0 needs to have a pattern that is (nearly) horizontal in the scatterplot.
For example, the following graph then has a correlation close to [r = 0] while also being linear.

Unusual points Each of the four scatterplots that follow shows a cluster of points and one “stray” point. For each, answer these questions:
1) In what way is the point unusual? Does it have high leverage, a large residual, or both?
2) Do you think that point is an influential point?
3) If that point were removed, would the correlation be- come stronger or weaker? Explain.
4) If that point were removed, would the slope of the re- gression line increase or decrease? Explain

In this exercise, you will use the correlation and regression applet to create scatter plots with 10 points that have a correlation close to 0.7. The lesson here is that many models may have the same correlation. Always compile your data before trusting correlations. (a) Stop after adding the first two points. What is the value of correlation?
(Enter your answer, rounded to four decimal places).
r=?
Why does correlation matter? Two is the minimum number of data points required to calculate the correlation. This value is the default correlation.
Because two points define a line, correlation always matters.
The mean of these two values always has this value.

Match each verbal statement with the value o fQCR U best matches. Drawing sample scatter plots might help you decide QCR values: -1 0 0.33 0.81 1. a. Mrs. A Every student who was below average on test 1 was also below average on test 2. Every student who was above average on test 1 was also above average on test 2." b. Ms. B: "Most of the students who were below average on test 1 were below average on test 2. Similarly, most of the students scoring above average on test 1 were also above average on test 2. There were a few exceptions, but the trend was clear." c. Mr. C: "Wow, there was really no correlation between test 1 and test 2! half the students who were below average on the first test were also below average on the second test, but half were above average! The same was true for the above average students!" d. Mr. D: "This is so weird. Every student who was below average on test 1 was above average on test 2, and vice versa." e. Mr. E: "Of those scoring above average on test 1, about 60% were above average on test 2, but 40$ were below average."
