Algebra 2

October 2, 2012

The Algebra 2 students are being introduced to graphing calculators, and all of the operations that they can do.  They did a lesson on best fitting lines, where they had to guess celebrities' ages and match them up with their actual ages.  This matching made the coordinate points on the graph.  From that, we were able to calculate the best fitting line for the data.  Students were shocked at how old some of the celebrities were.  They also had to name the celebrities before they were able to guess their age.  The celebrities included: Betty White, George Lopez, Channing Tatum, Pope Benedict, Lionel Messi, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Dr. Oz, Jason Aldean, JayZ, President Obama, and Oprah.
