Song: Interpret the Y-Intercept

A song that may be used in discussing the interpretation of the Y-intercept in a simple linear regression and the idea that the estimated Y-intercept may not make sense in the context of the problem (for example, taking impossible values or when X can never be zero) . The lyrics were written by Mary McLellan from Aledo High School in Aledo, Texas as one of several dozen songs created for her AP statistics course. The song may be sung to the tune of the 2013 song “Wrecking Ball,” by Miley Cyrus. Also, an accompanying video may be found at
