I absolutely think you could use regression as a introduction to graphing, whether it be linear, quadratic, or any other type of function. I teach algebra 2, so I don't have the opportunity to introduce the concept of a linear graph to my students. It would be interesting to hear what algebra 1 / middle school math teachers would say.Mark Kreiehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02405044207752416661noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3468015882172246111.post-56216332903349000402016-01-23T09:39:26.637-06:002016-01-23T09:39:26.637-06:00Thanks for posting this Mark. There is so much gre...Thanks for posting this Mark. There is so much great data out there to hook kids on best fit functions. Your post makes me wonder if a data collection and this graphing activity might serve as bait/motivation for linear function interest initially. I usually do regressions as a re-visit to linear equations and an activity where we finally get to use what we learned about linear functions. Weaving in and out of regressions while learning the basics of linear functions might create the need for linear functions that has been missing in my class. I wonder if anyone else has interweaved the order with success or failure and written about it.sara vaughnhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03847827275878152025noreply@blogger.com
