1. Remember my calculator post from last week? Well, some of my Finite Math students were still having a little bit of trouble using the calculator to do Regression on the calculator. This website on Cubic Regression seems to have done the trick for my students, and I don’t seem to be getting nearly as many questions about how to do regression on the calculator now have I have started to circulate this link around. So, I figured I would throw it out there as a resource for everyone else!
Here are a few notes on regression and other stuff I’ve noticed over the past week:
2. If you have a student who needs extra help and you aren’t fortunate enough to be teaching from a Pearson book that uses MyMathLab, you can always send your students over to InteractMath. The student just needs to choose a book with similar topics to that of which you are studying, and exercises will be generated from there. Actually, I’m using it in the on-line class I’m designing this semester because part of the challenge of creating this class is that we are supposed to use strictly free, on-line resources. And this definitely qualifies!
