This is a project to develop students' understanding of Newton's Method using the tools available in Geogebra.
This project was adapted from a similar project developed by folks at Grand Valley State University. (If any of you see this and would like more specific attributions, please let me know.)
In this note, we will show how transformations can be used to obtain a radically simple derivation of the equation of the line of best fit. Our approach also gives a simple geometric interpretation of the Pearson correlation coefficient.
