HERE'S A STATCRUNCH STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE!
Lab 1- due February 3rd by midnight.
***LABS MUST BE SAVED IN pdf FORMAT AND EMAILED TO firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be sure to label all problem numbers in labs clearly
Monday, August 31 class, sections 1.3-2.2- https://youtu.be/yO4CDR9n8Sc and (there are two) sections 2.4-3.1- https://youtu.be/iuaj-4njsts

and (there are 3)- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEEC9JEqDss
Wednesday, September 9 class- FOUR videos!
Video 1 starts with additional examples of The Emperical Rule and Chebyshev's Theorem
Video 1 - Quartiles and the five-number summary
Video 2 starts with problem #26 from section 3.4
Video 3 starts with problem #16 from section 3.5. We compare the two data sets.
These regression videos are based on the data: commute time vs. well-being, 4_1_25; bear length vs. bear weight, 4_1_28; credit score (FICO) vs. interest rate 4_1_26.
Video 1 is half of the class where the other video was consumed by the camera. Greedy bugger. It's about r values and scatterplots.
Video 2 starts with some homework questions about r values and z-scores. We discuss the overall steps of the linear regression process.
Video 3 starts with some estimation and goes through the total overall error.
Video 4 begins with a regression homework problem and finishes up the process started in video 3.
This video is all about probability, most of chapter 5.

Some Normal distribution examples. The first is an application of IQ scores as used by NVC's learning specialist and the second is how normally distributed global temperatures are changing due to global warming. In the second example, note how the change in the mean shifts the distribution left/right while the change in standard deviation changes the shape/width of the curve.
