Precalculus: Function Models for Real-Life Situations
Students use calculators and "by hand" techniques to compare models of real-life data situations, determine the best model for a situation, and use their models to make predictions.

New Review Modeling with Polynomials—An Introduction (part 2)
Linear, quadratic, and now cubic functions can model real-life patterns. High schoolers create cubic regression equations to model different scenarios. They then use the regression equations to make predictions.

Modeling a Context from Data (part 2)
Forgive me, I regress. Building upon previous modeling activities, the class examines models using the regression function on a graphing calculator. They use the modeling process to interpret the context and to make predictions based...
