Teacher Activities for Curve Fitting


Curve Fitting

Use this activity to help students understand how well a curve describes a data set. Learning goals include:
- how range, uncertainty and number of data points affect correlation coefficient and chi squared
- how correlation coefficient and chi squared can be used to indicate how well a curve describes the data relationship
- how to apply Curve Fitting to design better experiments
