Agenda

  • Last time: we had a look at a couple of graphics in Jon Hastings's power point (including one that showed a regression of wing length on body mass). We talked about the "banana" in the shape of the data that suggested the linear model was inappropriate.
  • Today, let's look at basic regression, and how it works. We'll also talk about some of the usual transformations, which are based on our understanding of the "function zoo".
  • What issues have arisen so far for you? Anything worth mentioning now?
    • Grayson?
    • Katie?
    • Tim?
  • Here's a new one! Let's spend a little time with it....
