This class will focus on various types of general linear models including simple and multiple regression, and log-linear models, as well as stepwise regression, logistic regression, and analysis of variance/covariance. The focus will be on real world examples from a variety of sources and using statistical software such as Excel, Minitab, SAS or R. Students should expect to produce reports and presentations. Prerequisite: MATH 341 with a C or better, or permission of the instructor.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
Identify various general linear models and discuss their characteristics, advantages and limitations Evaluate the relevant aspects of a real world data set and choose an appropriate type of regression model for data sets of various sizes and formats Formulate, fit, and apply the models using statistical software such as SAS or R Perform model assessment and improvement Interpret results and clearly state conclusions in reports and presentations with close attention to detail and demonstrating knowledge of data extraction and evaluation methods from previous classes
