In the Friedmann cosmology, the deceleration of the expansion q plays a fundamental role. We derive the deceleration as a function of redshift q(z) in two scenarios: ACDM model and modified Chaplygin gas (MCG) model. The function for the MCG model is then fitted to the cosmological data in order to obtain the cosmological parameters that minimize ÷2. We use the Fisher matrix to construct the covariance matrix of our parameters and reconstruct the q(z) function. We use Supernovae Ia, WMAP5, and BAO measurements to obtain the observational constraints. We determined the present acceleration as q0 = .0.65 ± 0.19 for the MCG model using the Union2 dataset of SNeIa, BAO, and CMB and q0 = .0.67 ± 0.17 for the Constitution dataset, BAO and CMB. The transition redshift from deceleration to acceleration was found to be around 0.80 for both datasets. We have also determined the dark energy parameter for the MCG model: nX0 = 0.81 ± 0.03 for the Union2 dataset and nX0 = 0.83 ± 0.03 using the Constitution dataset.
