Linear Regression: Height Estimations

High schoolers enter data including hand-spun, head circumference, cubit length and height. Formulas for total and average are used. A scatter-plot and trend line are attached to their spreadsheet. A height estimate for a given 'other' measurement is required. Interpretation of the constants, coefficients and bases in the context of the data are required.

Being a first year foreign language teacher came with many trials. However, having Lesson Planet has made my job so much easier :). I can always find a few lessons on any given concept I am introducing to my students. The neatest thing is the agility of use the site provides and the search for lessons by grade. I love that! (Especially since I teach 4th - 8th graders.) I need a variety of lessons that meets my students' needs at their level.
