+ | ===== Prerequisite ===== | ||

+ | Math 501 and Math 502, or equivalent. A course in linear algebra. **Graduate students from outside of the mathematical department and senior undergraduate students may take this course with Instructor's approval.** | ||

+ | |||

+ | ===== Learning Objectives ===== | ||

+ | - Basic theories of linear regression models: estimation, statistical inference, prediction, model diagnosis,model selection, etc. | ||

+ | - Proficient use of programming language R with applications to regression models. | ||

+ | - Basic training in scientific writing. | ||

+ | - Basic training in presentation. | ||

+ | |||

+ | <WRAP center round important 60%> | ||

+ | This course is a 4-credit course, which means that students are expected to do at least 12.5 hours of course-related work or activity each week during the semester. This includes scheduled class lecture/discussion meeting times as well as time spent completing assigned readings, studying for tests and examinations, preparing written and computing assignments, and other course-related tasks. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ===== Recommended Texts ===== | ||

+ | |||

+ | The required texts is **Faraway (2014)** (see below for details). | ||

+ | |||

+ | * **Required text** | ||

+ | * Faraway (2014). Linear Models with R, Second Edition. (Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science) | ||

+ | * Link to R scripts of the book: [[http://www.maths.bath.ac.uk/~jjf23/LMR/scripts2/|R codes]] | ||

+ | | ||

+ | * **Recommended additional reading** | ||

+ | * Sheather (2009). A Modern Approach to Regression with R. (Springer Texts in Statistics) | ||

+ | |||

+ | ===== Software ===== | ||

+ | R is chosen to be the statistical software used in this course. There are many online resources where the students can learn the basics of R. | ||

+ | - [[https://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-intro.pdf|An Introduction to R]] | ||

+ | - [[http://www.cyclismo.org/tutorial/R/|R tutorial by Kelly Black]] | ||

+ | - Here is a pointer to [[http://www.r-bloggers.com/|R blogs]]. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Please install R before the beginning of the semester. In addition to R, some may find RStudio to be handy. | ||

+ | Downloads: | ||

+ | * [[http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/|R]] - mirror hosted at UC Berkeley. | ||

+ | * [[http://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/|R Studio]] - a more user friendly platform for R. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **Note: This is not an R class. R will not even be taught in class. You are expect to learning R programming by yourself.** | ||

+ | ===== Grading ===== | ||

+ | * **Homework (20%)**: | ||

+ | - Assigned every day. Don't skimp on the homework if you want a good grade. | ||

+ | - You may discuss the problems with each other in general terms, but you must write your own solution. | ||

+ | - All sources, including friends and colleagues, must be cited. | ||

+ | * **Midterm exam (20%)**: October 23rd (tentative, subject to change) | ||

+ | * **Final Exam (30%)**: TBA. | ||

+ | * **Team project (30%)**: [[people:gang:regression_i:requirement|Guidelines]] | ||

+ | |||

+ | Slides (40%): you need to prepare slides that are clear, concise with great visualization of your results; Do not include too much technical detail; | ||

+ | |||

+ | Team presentation performance (30%, graded individually): you need to tell a story about your project; try to be as organized as possible and get right into the points; Your presentation should not be longer than 25 minutes; otherwise, you will be penalized; | ||

+ | |||

+ | Question/Answer performance (30%): you need to reserve 5 minutes for questions. The way you handle all questions must clearly show that you have sufficient knowledge of what you are doing.
