Title: The Regression Line and Correlation : Unit Overview
Url: http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?ID=U135
Publisher: Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Description: Created by Illumination: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this unit plan includes four lessons covering correlation and regression. Students will use interactive computer-based tools to investigate the relationship between a set of data points and a curve used to fit the data points. Students will be able to investigate relationships between variables using linear, exponential, power, logarithmic, and other functions for curve fitting. This is an excellent collection of statistical applets for students to interact with.
