Illuminations: Automobile Mileage - Year vs. Mileage

In this lesson, students plot data about automobile mileage and interpret the meaning of the slope and y-intercept in the resulting equation for the least squares regression line.

By examining the graphical representation of the data, students analyze the meaning of the slope and y-intercept of the line and interpret them in the context of the real-life application. Students also make decisions about the age and mileage of automobiles based on the equation of the least squares regression line.
