Exponential Regression

Activity Overview

In this activity, students perform exponential regression on a data set.

Before the Activity

  • Use the TI Connect™ and the TI Connectivity Cable to transfer data from the computer to the calculator
  • See the attached PDF file for detailed instructions for this activity
  • Print pages 1 - 5 from the attached PDF file for your class
  • During the Activity

    Distribute the pages to the class.

    Follow the Activity procedures:

  • Set up the calculator as explained in the activity to find the exponential regression of the given data
  • Change the base of the regression equation, and check that the regression equation with the base 'e' is the same equation
  • Enter the desired equation in the graphing editor and plot a graph
  • After the Activity

    Students answer the questions on the activity sheet.

    Review student results:

  • As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
