Using Data To Motivate the Models Used in Introductory Mathematics Courses.
Kerley, Lyndell; Knisley, Jeff
Primus, v11 n1 p111-23 Jun 2001
Although data is often used to estimate parameters for models in calculus and differential equations, the models themselves are seldom justified. Uses the data itself to motivate mathematical models in introductory mathematics courses. Illustrates various regression and optimization techniques. (Author/ASK)
