This applet is very user friendly. I like that it is easy to input coordinates,
and that different properties of the best fit line automatically show up. This
applet has obvious helpful applications as a supplement to chemistry or physics
experiments. I also like the fact that you can load in a data set. The only
thing I didn't see is if you can alter the best fit line. Can this line be
altered to properly fit data that follows a square or cubic relationship for
example? If it did, this applet would be far more useful.
