This lesson plan will help you to teach Introductory Statistics for Data Science through a Linear Regression assignment. The lesson plan includes a hands-on computer-based classroom activity to be conducted on a dataset of Yearly Global Average CO2 Concentrations in parts per million. This activity includes hands-on Python code, a set of inquiry-based questions that will enable your students to apply their understanding of scatter plots, regression equations, correlation coefficients, and linear regression.
Thus, the use of this lesson plan allows you to integrate the teaching of a climate science topic with a core topic in Mathematics , Statistics and Data Science..
The tools in this lesson plan will enable students to:
Here is a step-by-step guide to using this lesson plan in the classroom/laboratory. We have suggested these steps as a possible plan of action. You may customize the lesson plan according to your preferences and requirements.
Teaching Module (25 min)
Video micro-lecture (14 min)
Use the video micro-lecture, ‘Introduction to Simple Linear Regression’ by dataminingincae, INCAE Business School for a basic introduction to Simple Linear Regression and terms like dependant variable, independent variable, regression line, regression coefficients.
Use this lesson plan to help your students find answers to:
1 | Teaching Module, “Introduction- Linear Regression and Correlation” | Provided by OpenStax^{TM}, Rice University |
2 | Teaching Module, “Chapter 3: Linear Regression” | Provided by Ramesh Sridharan, MIT from ‘Statistics for Research Projects’ |
3 | Video micro-lecture, “Introduction to Simple Linear Regression“ | Presented by dataminingincae, INCAE Business School |
4 | Dataset | Monthly mean carbon dioxide globally averaged over marine surface sites for the span 1980-2020; Data Source: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) |
