Statistics 3011, Course Notes Supplement 8 December 13, 2010 Regression of Late Season Snowfall on Early Season Snowfall In this handout, we will study a regression of late-season snowfall on early-season snowfall using data from Fort Collins, CO. In this example, it is natural to think of late-season snow- fall as the response variable and early-season snowfall as the explanatory variable. We want to use early-season snowfall to predict late-season snowfall, while the reverse makes no sense. It is always a good idea to plot the data, so we use R to draw a scatterplot. > loc<-"http://www.stat.umn.edu/~crolling/data/ftcollinssnow.txt" > snow<-read.table(loc,header=T) > attach(snow) > plot(x=Early,y=Late,xlab="Sept-Dec Snowfall (in.)", + ylab="Jan-June Snowfall (in.)", + main="Late vs. Early Season Snowfall in Ft.

### 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.
