Algebra 1 - Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

With all the different types of functions you learn in Algebra 1, it is interesting that you can often look at a graph of data and make a prediction about what type of function it is. For example, we know that a quadratic function's graph will always be a parabola and a linear function will always be a straight line. You can also look at the data set and learn quite a bit about the function. The differences between the dependent variables will determine which type of function you are looking at. In today's free Algebra 1 video, Professor Edward Burger covers Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models. Over three lectures he'll show you the power of looking at data, finding patterns, seeing a potential model, and once you have the model, extrapolating into the future. Just make sure you click the forward button directly to the left of the timestamp to jump to the next lecture on the video.
