- __________ Calculate the slope of the linear trend line (also known as best fit line, least squares, linear regression) for the year versus temperature.
- __________ Calculate the y-intercept for the data.
- __________ Is the correlation positive, negative, or neutral?
- __________ Determine the correlation coefficient r.
- __________ Is the correlation none, low, moderate, high, or perfect?
- __________ Does the relationship appear to be linear or non-linear?
- __________ Determine the coefficient of determination.
