An equation of a line that represents reality
Found by using a linear model and substituting in an x-value to predict y.
Observed value - predicted value
"y-units per x-unit"
Gives a starting point in y-units. The y-value when x =0
Gives the fraction (percent) of the variability of y accounted for by the change in x.
DOES THE PLOT THICKEN? CONDITION
The scatterplot or residuals plot should show a consistent spread.
LINEAR REGRESSION CONDITIONS TO CHECK
Quantitative Variables, Straight Enough, Outliers, Does the Plot Thicken
Shows the relationship between 2 quantitative variables
DESCRIBING ASSOCIATION OF SCATTERPLOT
Discuss the direction, form, strength, possible outliers, and context of a scatter plot
Positive or negative (slope of the line)
Linear, Curved, Exotic, or no pattern
The closeness of the points
A point that does not fit the overall pattern
A numerical value that describes the direction and strength of a linear association
When it is unsafe to make predictions for x far from the ones used to find the linear model
Data points whose x-values are far from the mean of x
If the point is removed from the data set and a very different slope is produced
A variable that is not explicitly part of a model but affects the way the variables in the model appear to be related.
