# Regression

• ### Cartoon: Regression Assumptions

A cartoon to teach about the distributional assumptions in linear models. Cartoon by John Landers (www.landers.co.uk) based on an idea from Dennis Pearl (The Ohio State University). Free to use in the classroom and on course web sites.
• ### Quote: Deming on Data

In God we trust, all others bring data. An unsourced quote often attributed to American statistician and quality control pioneer William Edwards Deming (1900-1993). The quote has also been a motto of NASA for several decades.
• ### Cartoon: The Measurement Machine

A cartoon to teach about the measurement issues of bias, reliability, and validity. Cartoon by John Landers (www.landers.co.uk) based on an idea from Dennis Pearl (The Ohio State University). Free to use in the classroom and on course web sites.
• ### Brownian Motion Applet

This applet draws one-dimensional Brownian motion. Click the mouse in the window to start zooming. Click again to stop. Since Brownian motion is self-similar in law, all of the zoomed pictures look the same.
• ### Analysis Tool: HyperStat Online Statistical Analysis (Descriptive Statistics)

This page computes a variety of descriptive statistics and creates a stem and leaf plot. Enter data in the text area, specify a delimiter (Space, Return, Tab, New line), and click "Compute". The page returns sample size, mean, median, trimmed mean, trimean, minimum, maximum, range, first quartile, third quartile, semi-interquartile range, standard deviation, variance, standard error of the mean, skew, and kurtosis. Key Word: Calculator; Summary Statistics.

• ### Gamma Process Applet

This applet draws a Gamma process (a stochastic process with independent increments X(s + t) - X(s).) Click the mouse in the window to start zooming. Click again to stop. The total increase occurs at a countable set of jumps. The simulation gives some idea of this.

This collection of YouTube videos is designed to teach individuals how to use StatCrunch to enter data, graph data, obtain descriptive statistics, and conduct many different kinds of statistical analyses.

• ### Contingency Tables (with Calculator)

This page introduces contigency tables with an example on fruit trees and fire blight. Two calculators are provided that allow users to enter their own contigency table and test for treatment effects. The first calculator performs Fisher's Exact Test on a 2x2 tables. The second performs a chi-square test on up to a 9x9 table.

• ### Pearson's Product-Moment Coefficient of Correlation

This tutorial explains the theory and use of Pearson's Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation and demonstrates it with an example on GPA and test scores. Data is given as well as SPSS and Minitab code.
• ### Regression, Prediction, and Model Building

This tutorial explains the theory and use of Multiple Regression and demonstrates it with an example on SAT scores and GPA. Data is given as well as SPSS and Minitab code.
