All students are required to take the final exam. It will include material from the entire course, but it will emphasize the topics that we discussed after Exam 2.
Section 4.1: 1 and 2
Section 4.2: 1 and 2
Section 4.3: 1 (should be straightforward from reading the text)
A MATLAB program hw10.m is linked to this assignment on the Web. The MATLAB program plots the data values, and it also allows you to plot the "fit" provided by the equation Y = a X for values of the parameter a that you set in the program.X Y --- --- 1.00 0.688 1.78 0.849 3.16 2.152 5.62 3.024 10.00 5.453
What do you think is the "best" estimate of the parameter a to fit the given data with the relation Y = a X? Justify your answer as quantitatively as you can. Explain exactly how you arrived at your choice of a. Note that there is not a single correct answer, but there are many incorrect answers!
