Regression Participatory Action Research

Students gather data on the school and, using excel, uses multiple regressions (linear, exponential, quadratic) while providing explanations of key characteristics each type of graph (slope, growth/decay rate, vertex, etc) in addition to finding intercepts for each and extrapolating 2 and 4 years into the future. Following, each group chooses the appropriate graph that most convincingly supports the argument of “we need change at our college.” Students then research programs at other schools, non-profits or community based organizations that appropriate to their data. This is shared through a presentation to the class and then shared with an appropriate administrator/faculty member who is interested in a program like the students researched or would potentially oversee it; I identify the individual for the students.
