Unit 4: Curve Fitting

Overview

This is a two-day unit that allows students to take a series of real world data sets, and using the different functions they have explored throughout the course to find the best fit equation to model and make predictions for future events. The unit culminates with a project that tracks the minimum wage in America through the years and asks students to make judgments about the validity of the Minimum Wage Bill passed in 2010 and the future of the minimum wage in this country.
