Reviewer Comments:

This lesson leads the students to the concept of linear regression and provides them with an intuitive rather than a rigorous implementation of the idea. This is exactly the right approach to this and other branches of mathematics - do the intuitive approach before introducing any rigor ……………………………………………..………………………….…….…………….……………………………………….. This resource is part of a 8 week unit for an elementary Algebra class. The unit (Teaching Linear Equations through Running a Small Business ) covers linear equations, linear regression, and uses the simple economics of running a small business to illustrate the ideas. It requires the teacher to integrate the material with various skills, including use of the Internet and other technologies. It is an ambitious and ultimately rewarding undertaking.
