Whether you are looking to gain new knowledge or refresh your memory on regression and correlation, our chapter can help you adequately prepare for the test.

### 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.

### 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.

### 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.

### 4. 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.
