The following 4 sets of data do _not_ come from a real application, but they are still interesting anyway. 1. Graph it and fit a STRAIGHT LINE to it. 2. Say how good the fit is. 3. Write a math model that you feel might be better than a straight-line model (e.g. y=a*x^b+RandomError) and say why. Then comment on the overall results. Look at the R^2 values in particular. Write at least 2 sentences. (sorry to make that so annoying, but each year, lots of people forget to do it!)
