1. My research question is "Are homework averages correlated to how well we do on the Final exam?"

2.Explanatory Variable: homework averages, Response Variable: Final Exam

3. If the correlation coefficient is close to one, we have a high chance of acurately predicting future points and values. If it is close to 0 then there is not a strong correlation at all. Positive correlation occures with we have a strong positive value for *r* if it is negative we have a Negative correlation and the slope goes down instead of up.

4. r=0.7318607; There is not a very strong correlation. It is a positive correlation but not with a high degree of acuracy. It is not a dependable comparison.

5. Lurking variables may be, extra time studying, extra credit, missed homework assignments, incomplete homework assignments.

**Result 1: Scatter Plot**[Info]

**Result 2: Correlation**[Info]

Correlation between HW Average and Final Exam is: 0.7318607 |
