Line of Best Fit - Exploring Least Squares

1. Adjust the sliders for slope and intercept until you think you have the best line possible. (You may use the arrow keys on your keyboard to help the sliders move more precisely). 2. Select "My Fit" for a measure of how close you are. 3. Select "Geogebra Line" and "Geogebra Fit" to see Geogebra's linear regression fit. 4. Clear boxes and move points to try again or... 5. Move points and watch the fit change dynamically.
