This is the second video in the series which looks at investigating and modelling linear associations for the Year 12 General Maths (VCE) course. This video contains a fully worked example of how you can perform a linear regression using the least squares linear regression line for numerical data. I work through all the steps needed and show, at the end, how you can write a mathematical report. This is very helpful for SACs.
