Algebra 2 - Data Sampling Assignment

due date : 12/11/01

I would like you to do some real data collection. You may choose to do something similar to our work in class, where we measured foot length and height, or you may choose some other type of related data. For ideas, look at the problem set on p. 145 in the text. Here are the requirements:

1) Collect at least 20 ordered pairs of data. Write a brief statement to explain what x and y represent in your relation.

2) Graph the data. Use a format that is easy to understand and large enough for me to read.

3) Determine a linear function to fit the data. That is, find a line of best fit.

4) Neatness and clarity are the primary objectives of this project. Typed responses are welcomed.
