I need some help with my non linear porject now. My first project has not been graded yet but i sumbitted it online the other day so im still waiting. For this project my professor said we can pick any number so when you read the part of the directions where it says the instructor will assign each student a number or temperature, dont worry because shes not assigning anything. So what ever number and temperature you pick i would use it for both models unless you think it would e better yo use a different set of number. Also can you make sure that this is not traceable if possible. And that goes for my last project as well. You have already graduated from college so im sure you know where im going with this. Please let me if you need anything else.
Quadratic Regression (QR)
Data: On a particular day in April, the outdoor temperature was recorded at 8 times of the day, and the following table was compiled.
Time of day
REMARKS: The times are the hours since midnight. For instance, 7 means 7 am, and 13 means 1 pm.
The temperature is low in the morning, reaches a peak in the afternoon, and then decreases.
Tasks for Quadratic Regression Model (QR)
(QR-1) Plot the points (x, y) to obtain a scatterplot. Note that the trend is definitely non-linear. Use an appropriate scale on the horizontal and vertical axes and be sure to label carefully.
(QR-2) Find the quadratic polynomial of best fit and graph it on the scatterplot. State the formula for the quadratic polynomial.
(QR-3) Find and state the value of r2, the coefficient of determination. Discuss your findings. (r2 is calculated using a different formula than for linear regression. However, just as in the linear case, the closer r2 is to 1, the better the fit. Just work with r2, not r.) Is a parabola a good curve to fit to this data?
(QR-4) Use the quadratic polynomial to make an outdoor temperature estimate. Each class member will compute a temperature estimate for a different time of day assigned by your instructor. Be sure to use the quadratic regression model to make the estimate (not the values in the data table). State your results clearly — the time of day and the corresponding outdoor temperature estimate.
(QR-5) Using algebraic techniques we have learned, find the maximum temperature predicted by the quadratic model and find the time when it occurred. Report the time to the nearest quarter hour (i.e., __:00 or __:15 or __:30 or __:45). (For instance, a time of 18.25 hours is reported as 6:15 pm.) Report the maximum temperature to the nearest tenth of a degree. Show work.
(QR-6) Use the quadratic polynomial together with algebra to estimate the time(s) of day when the outdoor temperature is a specific target temperature. Each class member will work with a different target temperature, assigned by your instructor. Report the time(s) to the nearest quarter hour. Be sure to use the quadratic model to make the time estimates (not values in the data table). Show work. State your results clearly — the target temperature and the associated time(s). Show work.

Exponential Regression (ER)
Data: A cup of hot coffee was placed in a room maintained at a constant temperature of 69 degrees.
Thermometer Measuring Coffee Temperature
The temperature of the coffee was recorded periodically, and the following table was compiled.
REMARKS: Common sense tells us that the coffee will be cooling off and its temperature will decrease and approach the ambient temperature of the room, 69 degrees.
So, the temperature difference between the coffee temperature and the room temperature will decrease to 0.
We will be fitting the data to an exponential curve of the form y = A e- bx. Notice that as x gets large, y will get closer and closer to 0, which is what the temperature difference will do.
So, we want to analyze the data where x = time elapsed and y = T – 69, the temperature difference between the coffee temperature and the room temperature.
Tasks for Exponential Regression Model (ER)
(ER-1) Plot the points (x, y) in the second table (Table 2) to obtain a scatterplot. Note that the trend is definitely non-linear. Use an appropriate scale on the horizontal and vertical axes and be sure to label carefully.
(ER-2) Find the exponential function of best fit and graph it on the scatterplot. State the formula for the exponential function. It should have the form y = A e- bx where software has provided you with the numerical values for A and b.
(ER-3) Find and state the value of r2, the coefficient of determination. Discuss your findings.(r2 is calculated using a different formula than for linear regression. However, just as in the linear case, the closer r2 is to 1, the better the fit.) Is an exponential curve a good curve to fit to this data?
(ER-4) Use the exponential function to make a coffee temperature estimate. Each class member will compute a temperature estimate for a different elapsed time x assigned by your instructor. Substitute your x value into your exponential function to get y, the corresponding temperature difference between the coffee temperature and the room temperature. Since y = T – 69, we have coffee temperature T = y + 69. Take your y estimate and add 69 degrees to get the coffee temperature estimate. State your results clearly — the elapsed time and the corresponding estimate of the coffee temperature.
(ER-5) Use the exponential function together with algebra to estimate the elapsed time when the coffee arrived at a particular target temperature. Report the elapsed time to the nearest tenth of a minute. Each class member will work with a different target coffee temperature T assigned by your instructor.
Given your target temperature T, then y = T – 69 is your target temperature difference between the coffee and room temperatures. Use your exponential model y = A e-bx. Substitute your target temperature difference for y and solve the equation y = A e-bx for elapsed time x. Show algebraic work in solving your equation. State your results clearly — your target temperature and the estimated elapsed time, to the nearest tenth of a minute.
For instance, if the target coffee temperature T = 150 degrees, then y = 150 – 69 = 81 degrees is the temperature difference between the coffee and the room, what we are calling y. So, for this particular target coffee temperature of 150 degrees, the goal is finding how long it took for the temperature difference y to arrive at 81 degrees; that is, solving the equation 81 = A e- bx for x.
