Least Squares

In this least squares activity, students solve 6 different problems that include the least squares of numbers. First, they plot 3 points on the axes shown and draw in their best approximating line. Then, students estimate the slope and intercept. They also determine the errors in their estimate and the sum of the squares of the individual errors.
