Linear correlation is the basis for a lot of chapters coming up, so before we jump in, it's really important to get a good grounding of what the heck r is, why it goes from -1 to 1, and the unexpected situations that may result in a value of 0.

Linear Correlation Coefficients On Your Calculator

WARNING: before your calculator will spit out values for r and r^{2}, you have to turn on "diagnostic mode". It's a setting deep in your calculator. This video explains how to do that, then once you do r is a piece of cake.

Correlation Coefficient Hypothesis Tests

This video explains how to test whether your data has statistically significant linear correlation, by using yet another t-value formula to generate a t-value based on r, which you can then test against critical values.

Rather than plug r into a formula to get a t-value, you can instead do a full hypothesis test of your data without even touching paper. Pretty sweet!

OOPS! To create playlists you must logged in.

If you do not have an account, you should get one, because it is awesome! You can save a playlist for each test or each chapter, and save your "greatest hits" into a "watch right before the final" list (not that we recommend cramming, but when in Rome...)
