Vom Verlag:

Like many people, Mui is having trouble learning regression analysis-or even staying awake in class. But with new motivation, in the form of a handsome but shy customer, and the help of her brilliant cafe'; co-worker Risa, she's determined to conquer it.

Follow along with Mui and Risa as they calculate the effect of temperature on iced tea orders, predict bakery revenues, and work out probabilities of cake sales with simple, multiple, and binomial logistic regression analysis. You'll get a refresher in basic concepts such as matrix equations, inverse functions, logarithms, and differentiation, before learning how to:

  • Calculate the regression equation with sums of squares and regression coefficients
  • Work out the correlation coefficient to check the accuracy of your equation
  • Assess the regression analysis with hypothesis tests, analysis of variance, and confidence intervals
  • Use probability density functions and odds ratios to calculate probabilities of future events
  • Perform diagnostics checks to verify the validity of the analysis
  • Check the goodness of fit with Chi-square and F tests
Whether you're learning regression analysis for the first time or you've just never managed to wrap your head around the topic, The Manga Guide to Regression Analysis makes mastering this tricky technique simpler, straight forward, and fun.

Buchbeschreibung No Starch Inc. Okt 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 254x180x22 mm. Neuware - Regression analysis is a core component of the statistics classes required of millions of students. Regression analysis has numerous practical applications, such as predicting sales, finding risk factors for a disease, or anticipating demand for goods at a given price, but the math is challenging, and many struggle with the course. As with all titles in the best-selling Manga Guide series, The Manga Guide to Regression Analysis combines comics with real-world examples to teach readers how to use regression analysis to analyze data and make predictions. The book begins with a review of inverse functions, matrix algebra, and differential calculus, then goes on to explain single, multiple and logistic regression analysis. Readers also learn hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, F and Chi-squared distributions, significance levels, as well as how to use Microsoft Excel for calculations. Co-published with Tokyo-based technical publisher Ohmsha, this is the newest title in the popular Manga Guide series, with over 500,000 copies sold worldwide. 216 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781593277284
