**Title:** Determining Functions Using Regression

**Description:**
Students will determine the function of best fit for a set of data and recognize which category of function bests fit the data and know how to use technology to obtain a function. This lesson teaches these skills and prepares students for the subsequent lesson(s), in which they will collect their own data.

**Standard(s): **

[MA2013] AL1 (9-12) 30: Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.* [F-IF6]

[MA2013] ALC (9-12) 12: Create a model of a set of data by estimating the equation of a curve of best fit from tables of values or scatter plots. (Alabama)
