Lesson 6: Linear Regression
Course Topic(s): Developmental Math | Modeling: Dev Math | Linear Equations | Functions
Using real world data, this lesson introduces linear regression using lines of best fit that may calculated by hand by selecting two pints that appear to fall on the line of best fit. The lesson could also be used with a calculator to find the actual regression line. Interpolation and extrapolation are also introduced as well as scatter plots.
