Anna Peterson and Laura Ziegler will present at the 2022 Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE) seminar series.
Their presentation titled, "Building a Multiple Linear Regression Model with LEGO Brick Data," will take place on April 19th at 4:00pm.
To attend the seminar, you must register on the CAUSE site. Registration is free but required.
This event will highlight the Datasets and Stories article, "Building a Multiple Linear Regression Model with LEGO Brick Data". In the webinar, Peterson and Ziegler present an innovative activity that uses data about LEGO sets to help students self-discover multiple linear regressions. During the activity, instructors guide students to predict the price of a LEGO set posted on Amazon.com (Amazon price) using LEGO characteristics such as the number of pieces, the theme (i.e., product line), and the general size of the pieces. By starting with graphical displays and simple linear regression, students are able to develop additive multiple linear regression models as well as interaction models to accomplish the task. They conclude with reflections of past classroom experiences.
