Crash Course: Study Hall Algebra #14 - Fitting Equations to Data
Crash Course

In this episode of Study Hall Algebra, we’ll combine our linear and quadratic graphing skills to find meaning in these messes of data — because all data can tell us something.

Crash Course: Statistics #8 - Correlation Doesn't Equal Causation
Crash Course

Today we’re going to talk about data relationships and what we can learn from them.

Crash Course: Statistics #32 - Regression
Crash Course

Today we’re going to introduce one of the most flexible statistical tools – the General Linear Model (or GLM). GLMs allow us to create many different models to help describe the world – you see them a lot in science, economics, and politics.
