Product Description
Many linear regression problems give students a table filled in with data. In this activity, students will collect their own data. They will use the Internet and then their graphing calculators to determine the linear equation that models height and weight for the basketball team of their choice.

Overview: Students will choose a basketball team (college or professional) and look up the team's roster on the Internet. They will then record the height and weight of each player. After calculating the linear regression model with their graphing calculators, they will predict values using their model. Students will then record the jersey number and weight for each player. They will determine whether jersey number is a predictor for weight.

This resource can be used in-class or out-of-class, depending on your students' access to the Internet.

Great during the month of March with March Madness! :)
