Learning Objectives

At the end of this lesson, students will be able to:

  • Read and understand given problem situations.
  • Develop and use the strategy: Choose a Function Model.
  • Develop and use the strategy: Make a Model.
  • Plan and compare alternative approaches to solving problems.
  • Solve real-world problems using selected strategies as part of a plan.


Terms introduced in this lesson:

logistic regression

Teaching Strategies and Tips

The lesson presents several mathematical models arising from real-world applications in the examples.

Encourage students to read and understand the modeling process presented as a flow chart in the introduction.

In each of the examples, present and compare several regressions side-by-side. Allow students to see how accurate each is.

Error Troubleshooting

General Tip: Students rush to calculate the regression not stopping to consider its appropriateness. A scatter plot should always be consulted first.

General Tip: Have students check the data points they have inputed into a calculator twice.

General Tip: On the TI graphing calculators, students should be using LinReg(ax+b) or LinReg(a+bx)to perform linear regressions and not LnReg.
