# Difference between revisions of "Polynomial regression I"

Through the points defining the dashed line the regression polynomial of degree 'degree' is computed and displayed. The points can be scaled by adjusting the slider 'scale'. The degree of the regression polynomial can be changed by using the slider 'degree'.
