REGRESSION ANALYSIS
Although there are several techniques for estimating parameters,
the values of the parameters are often obtained by using a technique called regression analysis.
Regression analysis uses data on economic variables to determine...

Organizing Topic: Linear Modeling
Mathematical Goals:
Students will model linear relationships using a CBR™ (Calculator Based
Ranger).
Students will explore positive, negative and zero slopes as rates of change.
Students will make predictions using the line (curve) of best fit for the
modeled...

It covers the graphical user
interface of S-PLUS and introduces the underlying S language. The main goal of this book is to get you
started and the best way to do that is to use this book interactively during an S-PLUS session. After
reading this book you should be able to import data into the system...
Log-Linear Models
Brief History
Until the late 1960’s, two-way contingency tables were typically analyzed by calculating chi-square values testing the hypothesis of independence. When tables consisted of more than two variables, researchers used to compute the chi-squares for two-way tables...
can be many things: units produced, units sold, calls made, cars rented, pages printed, or hours worked. For example, making a wedding cake requires one kilo of flour for every order. As the number of cake orders increase, the number of kilos of flour that is consumed also increases, and vice versa. ...
Introduction to Minitab
Minitab is a statistical analysis software package. The software is freely available to all students and is downloadable through the ‘Technology Tab’ at my.calpoly.edu. When you ﬁrst launch Minitab, you will see the following screen: Notice that the active area contains two important...

Multiple linearregression efforts to model the relationship between two or more explanatory variables and a response variable by fitting a linear equation to observed data. Every value of the independent variable x is associated with a value of the dependent variable y. The population regressionline for...
Chapter 2: Linear Functions
Chapter one was a window that gave us a peek into the entire course. Our goal was to understand the basic structure of functions and function notation, the toolkit functions, domain and range, how to recognize and understand composition and transformations of functions...
