    • First, show how to use LINEST -- we'll derive this maybe next week
    • y = q(x) ... with uncertainty in x, how to propagate?

Approximation when it's a function of one variable (show plot from Taylor)

Taylor

As a function of more than one variable

Millikan

    • Derive approx. w/ Taylor's
