This course introduces simple and multiple linear regression models. These models allow you to assess the relationship between variables in a data set and a continuous response variable. Is there a relationship between the physical attractiveness of a professor and their student evaluation scores? Can we predict the test score for a child based on certain characteristics of his or her mother? In this course, you will learn the fundamental theory behind linear regression and, through data examples, learn to fit, examine, and utilize regression models to examine relationships between multiple variables, using the free statistical software R and RStudio.

TOP REVIEWS FROM LINEAR REGRESSION AND MODELING
I learn a lot. It added more lessons beyond my graduate school. Especially that the course is based on R, this course is very helpful for my journey towards using R.
Very good course taught by Dr. Mine who is as always a very good teacher. The videos are very eloquent and easy to understand. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a basic refresher course.
This was the first course where I started noticing that I'm really learning and was able to apply some of the earned knowledge at work.Totally recommended.
A great primer on linear regression with labs that help to establish understanding and a project that is focused enough not to be overwhelming, and allows the learner to play around with the concepts
