Weeks 1 to 5

1
Course Introduction
In this lecture we will go over the structure of the course, topics covered, how to study for the course, and initial assessment information.
David Hume Tower, Lecture Theatre C
18/09/2018 - 1:10pm to 2:00pm
2
Simple regression
This lecture will recap simple regression with a single continuous, and single binary predictor.
Lecture Theatre 2, Appleton Tower
19/09/2018 - 11:10am to 12:00pm
3
Multiple regression
In this lecture we will extend the regression model to include multiple independent variables, or predictors, and discuss the additional aspects of model interpretation that come with this.

4
Multiple regression
In this lecture we will continue from the last, discussing multiple regression.

5
Categorical predictors in regression models
Up to this point we have been focused on models including continuous predictors. In this lecture, we will begin from single binary predictors, and introduce the way in which we include categorical variables with 2+ levels. We will discuss dummy and effects coding, and discuss the differences with worked examples.

6
Model selection
When we add multiple predictors to our models, we enter a situation where we may have a set of models with different sets of predictors. In this lecture we will discuss how to choose which of these models is the best representation of our data.

7
Model diagnostics
In this lecture we will recap the set of linear model assumption, introduce those specific to models with more than one predictor, and look at some examples.

Model Assumptions
In this lecture we will recap the set of linear model assumption, introduce those specific to models with more than one predictor, and look at some examples.

9
Worked Example
In this lecture we will work through a complete analysis, start to finish. This session is intended both as a recap of the material covered and an integration of lecture and lab work.

10
Worked Example
In this lecture we will work through a complete analysis, start to finish. This session is intended both as a recap of the material covered and an integration of lecture and lab work. The session will be ended with a general Q&A on the first 5 weeks of the course.
