ab: Summary: This article outlines a linear regression activity that engages
learners, uses technology, and fosters cooperation. Students generated
least-squares linear regression equations using TI-83 Plus[TM] graphing
calculators, Microsoft[C] Excel, and paper-and-pencil calculations
using derived normal equations to predict the 2004 presidential
election. (Contains 2 tables, 6 figures and 2 appendices.) (ERIC)
