Optional Exercise After Assignment 1 This optional exercise is designed to give you a little familiarity with JMP Data Tables  and some of the things you can do with them.  We are going to recreate all of the columns  of data on page 151.  We will do this through JMP “formulas.”  A formula takes the values  of an existing variable and manipulates them to obtain new variables.  If you have any  experience with formulas in an Excel spreadsheet, you will catch on to this quickly.  Even  without that experience, it is not hard. 1. Open the file “Example from page 151.jmp.  As before, you will see on the  N  = 23  observations from page 151.  Move you cursor anywhere in the Table to the right of  our existing variable and  right  click.  The first option in the menu that appears is  New Column .  Click on that and a control box for your new column will appear. 2. The first thing we want to do is change the  Column Name , which is currently  “Column 2.”  Highlight that name and just type over it.  Let’s call the variable  “Deviations.”   3. Next click on the drop-down box labeled  Column Properties .  The very first menu  option is  Formula .  Click on it and the formula box appears.

    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.
