## Linear Regression Tutorials

I used these linear regression tutorials with my Algebra 2 students several years ago, but I never ended up sharing them here on my blog.

Five or so years ago before I ever started teaching, I purchased a hula hoop at a yard sale.  I paid a whopping 10 cents for …

## Guessing Correlation Coefficient Game

State testing has thrown my teaching off so much lately.  I usually try to keep all of my Algebra 1 classes in the same place, but that just hasn’t been possible these past few weeks.
