In this nine-lesson unit, from Illuminations, students interpret the slope and y-intercept of least squares regression lines in the context of real-life data. Students use an interactive applet to plot the data and calculate the correlation coefficient and equation of the least squares regression line. These lessons develop skills in connecting, communicating, reasoning, and problem solving as well as representing fundamental ideas about data.
