Title: Using a Calculator for Finding the Equation of a Function
To determine the function of best fit for a set of data, students should recognize which category of function bests fit the data and know how to use technology to obtain a function. Students will use linear regression to find the best function. This lesson teaches these skills and prepares students for the subsequent lesson(s), in which they will collect their own data.
