In this paper we study the presentation of linear regression in Spanish textbooks, from different publishers, written for the first year of Bachillerato (16 years old), Spanish post-compulsory Secondary Education (Baccalaureate). We perform a three-way analysis, based on conceptual, educational-cognitive, and phenomenological points of view. Furthermore, we perform a study of the type of problems and exercises proposed in the textbooks. Finally, we analyze correspondences between contents in textbooks and Spanish official curriculum for this year. Our goal is to check whether textbooks include innovative key points recently introduced in the official curriculum, because, in Spain, textbooks are still very important tools in the classroom.
