Lecture no. 8 from the course: Understanding Multivariable Calculus: Problems, Solutions, and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Apply techniques of optimization to curve-fitting as you explore an essential statistical tool yielded by multivariable calculus. Begin with the Least Squares Regression Line that yields the best fit to a set of points. Then, apply it to a real-life problem by using regression to approximate the annual change of a man’s systolic blood pressure.
