journal icon Algebra II Journal: Reflection 1

Respond to the following reflection questions in your Algebra II Journal opens in new window and submit to your teacher.

  • When is a sinusoidal curve the best fit for a data set?
  • Compare the San Diego and Boston curves one more time.  Of these two cities, what recommendations would you make to Andrew and Marissa?  Which city should their families visit?  Which month(s) would you recommend?  Why?
