Calculate Linear Regression and Graph Scatter Plot and Line of Best Fit What is simple linear regression? Simple linear regression is a way to describe a relationship between two variables through an equation of a straight line, called line of best fit, that most closely models this relationship. A common form of a linear equation in the two variables x and y isy=mx+b where m and b designate constants. Coping With Math Anxiety What Is Math Anxiety? A famous stage actress was once asked if she had ever suffered from stage-fright, and if so how she had gotten over it. She laughed at the interviewer’s naive assumption that, since she was an accomplished actress now, she must not feel that kind of anxiety.

9 Terrific STEM Teaching Resources Every now and then, we get an unexpected surprise from someone as interested in supporting teachers and students as we are. When this happens, it usually means someone has gone out of their way to research and produce a valuable list of incredible online resources for use in education, and done a great job of doing so. I’m happy to say it’s happened yet again. We recently received a list of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) links from Jasmine Dyoco at EducatorLabs. starters.co.nz BP Challenge is a hands-on competition where students work as a team using simple materials to solve problems. Once known as the BP Technology Challenge, the BP Challenge has strong links to New Zealand's technology, science and mathematics curriculum and other curriculum areas. Over the past 21 years, many hundreds of thousands of students have taken part in Regional BP Challenge events, inter-school challenges, school-wide challenges and class challenges.

untitled The GNU operating system is a complete free software system, upward-compatible with Unix. GNU stands for “GNU's Not Unix”. Richard Stallman made the Initial Announcement of the GNU Project in September 1983. A longer version called the GNU Manifesto was published in March 1985. It has been translated into several other languages. CME Project About the Program. The CME Project, developed by EDC’s Center for Mathematics Education and published by Pearson, is a coherent, four-year, NSF-funded high school mathematics program designed around how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics: the themes of algebra, geometry, and analysis. The CME Project sees these branches of mathematics not only as compartments for certain kinds of results, but also as descriptors for methods and approaches—the habits of mind that determine how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics itself. As such, they deserve to be centerpieces of a curriculum, not its by-products. The Program’s Structure. The CME Project uses the traditional American structure of algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and precalculus.
