Linear Regression

The activity below consists of fifteen data points on a portion of the coordinate plane. Any of the data points can be moved within the window. You are able to move the data points be clicking on them and then dragging the mouse to the desired location (while holding down the mouse button). To release the data point, simply release the the mouse button. By clicking the "Reset" at the bottom of the page the data points will be restored to their original settings.

Please, note that data points may be placed on top of one another. Also data points may appear to jump after releasing them. This is due to the fact that each data point must be of integer value.
