Chapter 6 Lesson 10 – Find The Best Fitting Line/Scatter Plots

OK, welcome to lesson 10 the topic is scatter plots and best fitting lines.  Basically we will be looking for trends when we plot several points.  If we identify a trend that seems to have a shape of a line we write a “best fitting line equation” to represent the trend.  Of course you need to understand all the skills we have studied up to this point so never be shy to review if you need to.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• correlation
• how to identify a best fitting line
• what a scatter plot is

Never, never, never stop trying!

Wow, one more lesson and you will finish the chapter! At this point in the course you should be able to:

* feel good about solving equations

* feel good about graphing lines

* feel good about finding the equations of lines

Let’s finish the chapter by exploring linear word problems

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
