# Regression

• ### Bootstrapping

This lesson describes bootstrapping in the context of a statistics class for psychology students.
• ### ** Linear Regression Calculator

This Flash applet provides an introduction to simple linear regression for introductory statistics students. It combines a brief narrated animation with an interactive scatterplot function. Students are able to place points on the scatterplot by clicking with a mouse or typing X-Y coordinates. Students use these points to learn about the best fit line by placing a guess on the plot and comparing it with the least squares line. Students also learn about the value of the correlation coefficent and points that would be considered outliers. Students may also specify a value of x (within the range of the data) and obtain the resulting predicted value.
• ### Exploring the Goodness of Fit in Linear Models

A "12 page" tutorial that explores the liner models via excel spreadsheets. The learning module leads the user through various aspects of linear modeling. This tutorial includes a worksheet that allows students to vary the scatter (or noise) level, by adjusting the scroll bar or by clicking on the arrows, to see how the slope and intercept of line respond to the addition of scatter to the data, while monitoring the value of r^2.

• ### EXCITE

EXCITE is a collection of teaching materials developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to introduce students to public health and epidemiology. Students will learn about the scientific method of inquiry, basic biostatistics, and outbreak investigation. EXCITE adapts readily to team teaching across a variety of subjects, including mathematics, social studies, history, and physical education.

• ### Reading Comprehension Items on the SAT

This correlation and regression example compares performance on reading comprehension questions to performace on the SAT. It also compares those who read the passage referred to by the questions to those who did not. Exercise questions and answers are also provided.
• ### Analysis Tool: JFreeChart

JFreeChart is a free Java class library for generating charts, including: pie charts (2D and 3D); bar charts (regular and stacked, with an optional 3D effect); line and area charts; scatter plots and bubble charts; time series, high/low/open/close charts and candle stick charts; combination charts; Pareto charts; Gantt charts; wind plots, meter charts and symbol charts; wafer map charts;

• ### JFreeReport

JFreeReport is a free Java report library. It has the following features: full on-screen print preview; data obtained via Swing's TableModel interface (making it easy to print data directly from your application); XML-based report definitions; output to the screen, printer or various export formats (PDF, HTML, CSV, Excel, plain text); support for servlets (uses the JFreeReport extensions) complete source code included (subject to the GNU Lesser General Public Licence); extensive source code documentation.

• ### Olympic Games Results by Event

This site is a collection of data that contains the results of the Olympic track and field events. It contains the times not only of the winners, but of all the contestants.
• ### JCommon Java Library

JCommon is a collection of useful classes used by JFreeChart, JFreeReport and other projects. The library includes: text utilities, user interface classes for displaying information about applications, custom layout managers, a date chooser panel, serialization utilities, and XML parser support classes.

• ### JFreeDesigner

JFreeDesigner is a graphical report definition designer for JFreeReport. It allows the user to edit the xml source code of a report and to use a graphical WYSIWYG-editor to define the layout of the elements. This designer is currently in the early alpha state. At the moment most of the more advanced functionality is missing, but the current state allows you to edit the elements of a report.
