Ch 35: FTCE Math: Regression & Correlation

About This Chapter

Strengthen your abilities in data analysis as you complete our Regression & Correlation chapter. Although the information has myriad applications in many sciences, you will find it particularly useful as you prepare for the FTCE Math exam.

FTCE Math: Regression & Correlation - Chapter Summary

It could be said that math and science are sister disciplines. Both thrive on the collection of data, but raw information has no meaning until it is interpreted and applied. As you prepare for the FTCE Math exam, gain some new perspectives and dust off some old ones as you watch these videos. They cover the material in the list below:

  • Samples and procedures for building and reading scatterplots
  • Explanation and formula for simple linear regression
  • How to use linear regression to solve problems
  • Formula, definition and example of the correlation coefficient
  • Identifying and interpreting correlations
  • Understanding correlation and causation
  • Comprehending and working with linear relationships

This refresher course, while composed of lessons that take no more than ten minutes, offers you the means to build a focused and comprehensive study plan. Presentation of the material through the videos and written transcripts, measurement and evaluation through lesson quizzes and chapter tests, and the availability of expert instructors and subject-matter specialists provide you with all of the resources you need. When you have questions, we have answers, and we place them at your fingertips.

Creating & Interpreting Scatterplots: Process & Examples

1. Creating & Interpreting Scatterplots: Process & Examples

Scatterplots are a great visual representation of two sets of data. In this lesson, you will learn how to interpret bivariate data to create scatterplots and understand the relationship between the two variables.

Simple Linear Regression: Definition, Formula & Examples

2. Simple Linear Regression: Definition, Formula & Examples

Simple linear regression is a great way to make observations and interpret data. In this lesson, you will learn to find the regression line of a set of data using a ruler and a graphing calculator.

Problem Solving Using Linear Regression: Steps & Examples

3. Problem Solving Using Linear Regression: Steps & Examples

Linear regression can be a powerful tool for predicting and interpreting information. Learn to use two common formulas for linear regression in this lesson.

The Correlation Coefficient: Definition, Formula & Example

4. The Correlation Coefficient: Definition, Formula & Example

The correlation coefficient is an equation that is used to determine the strength of the relationship between two variables. This lesson helps you understand it by breaking the equation down.

How to Interpret Correlations in Research Results

5. How to Interpret Correlations in Research Results

Perhaps the most common statistic you'll see from psychology is a correlation. Do you know how to correctly interpret correlations when you see them? This lesson covers everything you need to know.

Correlation vs. Causation: Differences & Definition

6. Correlation vs. Causation: Differences & Definition

When conducting experiments and analyzing data, many people often confuse the concepts of correlation and causation. In this lesson, you will learn the differences between the two and how to identify one over the other.

Interpreting Linear Relationships Using Data: Practice Problems

7. Interpreting Linear Relationships Using Data: Practice Problems

Understanding linear relationships is an important part of understanding statistics. This lesson will help you review linear relationships and will go through three practice problems to help you retain your knowledge. When you are finished, test out your knowledge with a short quiz!
