MATH 1342 Name ___________________________ Elementary Statistical Methods Lab 3 - Ch.4 Linear Regression Critical Thinking; Communication Skills; Empirical/Quantitative Skills 1. Researchers wondered whether the size of a person’s brain was related to the individual’s mental capacity. They selected a sample of right-handed introductory psychology students who had SAT scores higher than 1350. The subjects took the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised to obtain their IQ scores. MRI scans were performed at the same facility for the subjects. The scans consisted of 18 horizontal MR images. The computer counted all pixels with a nonzero gray scale in each of the 18 images, and the total count served as an index for brain size. a) On the axes above, draw a scatter diagram treating MRI count as the explanatory variable and IQ as the response variable. Label the graph! b) Test whether there is a linear relationship between MRI count and IQ.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
