Forearm Length vs. Height - Linear Modeling

he main purpose of this lab is to explore the proportionality of forearm length and height. The students will record their heights and forearm lengths, first plotting on a table. Each group will plot their twelve points on the given graph paper, and then draw a "best-fit-line". Each group will be asked to give the linear equation--in both slope-intercept form as well as standard form.
