Which Model Models Best?

In this lesson, you will apply what you have learned to find a model of best fit for data sets.  You will justify your model using residuals and/or the correlation coefficient (if a linear model).

Before you explore the first set of data, reflect on your understanding of the following functions:

  • Linear Functions
  • Exponential Functions
  • Quadratic Functions
  • Cubic Functions
  • Quartic Functions
  • Power Functions
  • Logarithmic Functions
  • Logistic Functions
  • Trigonometric Functions
What are the key features of each function type?  What are some situations that are typically modeled by each function family?
