Video: Algebra Applications: Linear Functions

Description: In this episode of Algebra Applications, three real-world explorations of linear functions are developed: Sports. The relationship between slope and grade in cycling is explored. Oil Exploration. A linear regression of oil consumption data over the past 25 years reveals an interesting pattern. Health. The maximum heart rate from aerobic exercise is a linear function dependent on age. Students are asked to develop a data table based on the function.
