Math 212BambhaniaFall 2017Project: Find A Linear FunctionFor this assignment, you can work in agroup of up to 3 people.In the “real world”, functions do not usually arise automatically as࠵?࠵?=࠵?࠵?+࠵?as we see in a math class.Instead, they come from data points, such as lab results, population counts, etc. When this data is graphed, if thecluster of points look like they approximately have a constant rate of change, we say that there appears to be alinear relationship and find an equation of the form࠵?࠵?=࠵?࠵?+࠵?that best describes the relationship. (The sameis true for other types of functions.) Once we have a formula for the function, usually called a mathematical model,we can use it to make predictions. In this project you will develop a linear model.The bullet points below lead you through the steps you need to go through in this project. Each of these pointsneeds to be addressed directly in your final project report.
