Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Linear Functions, Segment 3: Oil Exploration
This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: The potential for oil exploration in the controversial Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) sets the scene for this problem. A linear regression of oil consumption data over the past 25 years reveals an interesting pattern. How could new oil fields like ANWR help in breaking our dependence on foreign oil?
