This week we have 3 learning goals. It will take the entire week to do them.
- Linear regression for prediction. How it differs from hypothesis testing.
- Showing how to use R instead of, or in conjunction with, Rattle.
- Many specific tricks and issues that come up with linear regression, such as word equations and creating interactive variables.
Please see the attached document, which includes the readings, specific homework due Friday, and supplemental information about various useful ideas and techniques.
