Video Tutorial: Line of Best Fit
This video looks at the Line of Best Fit. A real-world data set is analyzed, from which a linear function in slope-intercept is derived. Students are shown how to find the line of best fit using a TI graphing calculator. Strategies for estimating the line of best fit are also explored.
