Algebra 1 B: Chapter 8Modeling Linear Data with Lines of BestFit and Regression
The work we do in class is loosely based on the material our book covers in chapter 8. We will go much more indepth and have a lot more fun than your book does. We are going to throw in a couple of ideas from chapter 14. Don't worry, you'll do great!
Note: Because we are not following the section numbers in your book, I'm using an abc system for day 1day 2day 3. When our work corresponds directly to the book, I'll go back to the traditional numbering method: 81, 82, etc.
