Press Menu.

Use arrows to highlight STAT icon and press EXE.

Enter your data in two lists (x-values in L1, Y-values in L2)

Press F2 to activate the CALC Tab at the bottom of screen.

This is what you see.

Press F3 to activate the REGression tab.

This is what you will see: the TABs at the bottom of screen.

Each tab corresponds to a regression model: X-linear, X2 quadratic, etc.

If you press F3:X^2, you get the following

You see the parameters of the regression equation, the coefficient of determination r^2, and the Mean Square error. No correlation coefficient is defined for this regression model.

For other models like linear, logarithmic, power and exponential regressions, the correlation coefficient is defined and is thus displayed with the regression equation. It is the r-value.

The drawing of the scatter plot proper is explained in the last part (Part F). You might want to jump right to it.

Before doing statistics, you have to prepare the calculator by clearing old data that may generate errors.

A. TO CLEAR OLD DATA

To obtain the correlation coefficient in a statistical analysis on the TI8xPlus family of calculators you must activate the DIAGNOSTICSON option. To access the command

D. ENTER THE DATA

Press [STAT][1:Edit]

Type in your D (X ) values in L1 and the N (Y) values in L2 (see picture 1). Sorry the picture does not have YOUR values.

TO OBTAIN statistical RESULTS (optional)

Notice the Down Arrow next to n=7. That means the results screen has more values. Press the Down Arrow to display.

You notice that the n=7 line now has an arrow pointing Up. Notice the Down Arrow on the bottom line (more data is coming). Here is the rest of the statistical results.

There is no arrow at the bottom of the picture. End of statistical results.

The screen captures with 2-Var Stats summarize all the statistics.

However there is no correlation coefficient, no line of best fit, etc. To obtain that you have To perform a regression analysis.

E. PERFORM A REGRESSION ANALYSIS

To perform a regression analysis, you must try several regression models and then find the one that mimicks the raw data best. Select Regression model (Example Exponential, linear, sine, quadratic, etc.) Here I selected Exponential

You also have r and its square.

Since the equation is saved in the Y1 function it can be superposed on the scatter plot. You just have to press GRAPH and it will be drawn. But that will not tell how good the fit is, until you see the function drawn on top of the raw data.

F. DRAWING THE SCATTER PLOT AND BEST FIT CURVE ON SAME SCREEN

Regardless of the curve of best fit, you can draw a scatter plot as follows.

Here plot1 is active (ON), it is scatter plot (first icon) the XLIST is L1 by default but you can change it to some other list. Notice the highlighted A cursor on XLIST line. It means that the [ALPHA] keyboard is active.

On the line Mark you can choose the appearance of the raw data point.

And here are your two graphs: the raw data scatter plot and the line of best fit on the same screen. On the picture the ZoomStat option was used.

Now, it is up to you to accept this model or to try another model.

There is no arrow at the bottom of the picture. End of statistical results.

The screen captures with 2-Var Stats summarize all the satistics.

However there is no correlation coefficient, no line of best fit, etc. To obtain that you have to perform a regression analysis.

E. PERFORM A REGRESSION ANALYSIS

To perform a regression analysis, you must try several regression models and then find the one that mimicks the raw data best. In this particular case, you have already decided to do a linear regression, and that is good for me. I do not have the time to take you through all of them. In this step you must select the exponential regression model.

You also have r and its square. You need to read your theory to know which of the two correlation coefficients you have been asked to obtain.

Since you saved the equation in the Y1 function you can draw it. You just have to press GRAPH and it will be drawn. But that will not tell how good the fit is, until you see the function drawn on top of the raw data.

DRAWING THE SCATTER PLOT AND BEST FIT CURVE ON SAME SCREEN

Regardless of the curve of best fit, you can draw a scatter plot as follows.

Here plot1 is active (ON), it is scatter plot (first icon) the Xlist is L1 by default but you can change it to some other list. Notice the highlighted A cursor on XLIST line. It means that the [ALPHA] keyboard is active.

On the line Mark you can choose the appearnce of the raw data point.

And here are your two graphs: the raw data scatter plot and the line of best fit on the same screen. On the picture the ZoomStat option was used.

Now, it is up to you to accept this model or to try another model.

Before doing statistics, you have to prepare the calculator by clearing old data that may generate errors.

A. TO CLEAR OLD DATA

- Press [2nd][+] (MEM) to open the memory management screen.
- Press [4:ClrAllLists]
- The command echoes on main screen, press [ENTER] to run it.
- Calculator displays Done.

- Press [STAT][5:SetUpEditor] [ENTER] ; calculator displays Done.

To obtain the correlation coefficient in a statistical analysis on the TI8xPlus family of calculators you must activate the DiagnosticsOn option. To access the command

- You press [2nd] [0] (CATALOG)
- While the list of commands is displayed, press [X^-1] (D)
- Cursor jumps to first command that starts with D, dayOfWk(
- Press the DownArrow 9 times to reach DiagnosticsOn
- Select it and press [ENTER]
- Command echoes on main calculator screen with blinking cursor
- Press [ENTER] to set the option
- Calculator displays Done.

D. ENTER THE DATA

Press [STAT][1:Edit]

Type in your D (X ) values in L1 and the N (Y) values in L2 (see picture 1). Sorry the picture does not have YOUR values.

TO OBTAIN THE STATISTICAL RESULTS (optional)

- After you finish entering the data, press [2nd][Quit] to exit StatEditor.
- Press [STAT] and highlight Menu (CALC)
- In the list select [2:2-Var Stats]
- Command echoes on main screen.
- Press [ENTER] to calculate the stats

In this step you must select the exponential regression model.

- Press [STAT] , highlight [CALC]
- In the list of regression models select [0:ExpReg]
- The command ExpReg echoes on main calculator screen.
- If you press [ENTER] you will get you equation but you will not be able to draw the curve on top of your data to verify the goodness (no it is not a swear word) of the fit. So you must save the equation as a function in Y1 variable.
- While ExpReg command is still in command line, press the [VARS] key.
- Highlight the [Y-VARS] menu and select [1:Function], then press [ENTER].
- In the Y function variable list select [1:Y1]
- At the command line, you have ExpReg Y1.
- Press [ENTER] to save the equation of best fit in Y1.

You also have r and its square. You need to read your theory to know which of the two correlation coefficients you have been asked to obtain.

Since you saved the equation in the Y1 function you can draw it. You just have to press GRAPH and it will be drawn. But that will not tell how good the fit is, until you see the function drawn on top of the raw data.

DRAWING THE SCATTER PLOT AND BEST FIT CURVE ON SAME SCREEN

Regardless of the curve of best fit, you can draw a scatter plot as follows.

- Press [2nd][Y=] (STATPLOT)
- Select [1:Plot1...Off] and press ENTER to open plot1 configuration screen
- Use arrow to highlight On and press ENTER
- Use the down arrow to move cursor to the line Type.

Here plot1 is active (ON), it is scatter plot (first icon) the Xlist is L1 by default but you can change it to some other list. Notice the highlighted A cursor on XLIST line. It means that the [ALPHA] keyboard is active.

On the line Mark you can choose the appearnce of the raw data point.
