Correlation Nonlinear correlation- (parabola) No Correlation- dots all over the graph (no apparent order). Negative linear correlation - as one variable (x) gets larger; the other (y) gets smaller. Positive linear correlation - as one variable (x) gets larger; the other (y) gets larger. r = -1 perfect negative correlation, r = 1 perfect positive correlation. r ≈ 0, No or weak correlation. Ordered pairs (x,y). X is the independent (explanatory), y is the dependant (response) variables. - Identify the explanatory (independent) variable and the response (dependant) variable. Ex a researcher wants to determine if a child’s age can be used to predict the number of word’s in their vocabulary. Age is explanatory # of words is response. Ex an emergency service wants to see if there is a relationship between outside temperature and the number of emergency calls it receives in a day. Temperature is explanatory # of calls is response. Ex Calculate the correlation coefficient (r) for outside temp (x) and number of cups of coffee sold per hour (y).

    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.
