Data Analysis Modelling and Simulation MATH1711 Epiphany Term Practical Sheet 1 Aim: To calculate and analyse weighted least-squares approx- imation 1 to a data set . Note before you start: 1. Press Enter at the end of a line to execute the statement. 2. Try to understand what each line in red does, ask the staff or a friend if you don’t. 3. Once you have pressed the Enter key MAPLE will always remember the statement. restart; erases the memory. 4. Other hints/tips can be found on the zeroth sheet 5. There is a point to everything, to reinforce and support what was done in lectures/problems classes. Ask yourself “what is the point of doing this?”, typically the answer is positive! Find the linear least-squares fit to the data below where an equal weight has been assigned to each point x i 0 1 2 3 4 y i 1.7190 0.0470 - 0.8211 - 2.3207 - 3.5653 . Investigate the behaviour when different weights are chosen. 2 Try the worksheet on various sets of data, for example question 1 from the problem sheet: 1 See your lecture notes for the “normal equations” 2 Start by changing only one value, make it big then small, then two, then play some more.

### What students are saying

• 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.
