The documentation for TI83+ says:
QuadReg (quadratic regression) fits the second-degree polynomial y=a·x2+b·x+c to the data. It displays values for a, b, and c; when DiagnosticOn is set, it also displays a value for R2. For three data points, the equation is a polynomial fit; for four or more, it is a polynomial regression. At least three data points are required.
What is the difference between a "fit" and a "regression"? Which one is more accurate?
Thank you in advance.
