Interactive video lesson plan for: The Regression Line in Statistics, on StatsCenter (Ep. 16)

Activity overview:

What is the best predictor of wins in the NBA… points, rebounds, or assists? In the study of statistics, we can create an equation, called a “regression model,” to predict the number of wins a team has, based on their total points for the season. Amazing. To do this, we need to calculate several terms, including the correlation coefficient (r) and the best fit line. Then we are able to create our prediction, using the correlation of determination, from r squared.

It all sounds complicated, but we break it down for you with nice pictures and graphs that flow really smoothly. A good way to conclude our statistics and sports series in top form!

As this is our final episode, a special thank you to guests Stephen Curry, Lebron James, David Beckham, Charles Barkley, John Madden, Mike Tyson, Peyton Manning, Stephen A. Smith, Billy Beane, and Mike Breen!
