Week 25 ending 3/1


In Class

· Learning Target: I can calculate r using z scores.

Learning target: I can decide if a correlation is statistically significant and correctly interpret the result. You’ll need a copy of this table <PDF: Critical Values of r>

· HO with built in review. Due by the end of class time tomorrow.


This work if you are not done.


Learning target: We will be able to explain why Correlation does not mean Causation.

Watch AAO <link>

Go to <link>

Choose your own wacky pair of variables.

Record them as x and y

Use a spreadsheet or statcrunch to draw a scatterplot and calculate r

Screen capture your graph and make a post in Canvas

Also make sure you can explain why causation does not exist. Suggest some lurking variables.

Make sure to see my example in the Canvas Discussion

In Class:

Some practice, on paper, to help you gain some expertise in understanding how correlation as a measure of the linear association between two quantitative variables works. You have to do this and show me your work.

In Canvas, you’ll also find a MOM assignment about correlation. You must do the last question or you will not receive full credit. Make sure to submit a link to your spreadsheet (See Canvas) or your work on paper.

In class: One more work day.


In class:

Learning Target: We will be able to find a linear regression model and explain why the LSRE is the best linear model to use.

We will watch this: <link>
