17- Linear Regression Is More Than a Calculation

Thursday, October 27, 2016: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
225 (Phoenix Convention Center)


Lead Speaker:
Amber R. Severson
Erin E. Richgels and Glen W. Richgels


In this presentation we will differentiate between causation and correlation. Linear regression is a computation that helps forecast the future, fill in gaps in data, and look at the past. Too often we do not ask students to think about these computations. We will look at examples that demonstrate that regression is a tool to be used thoughtfully.
