Determining the value of Pearsons Correlation Coefficient

Investigating relationships between two numerical variables

Year 11

This video continues the module relating to Data and Statistics for the VCE General Maths course (Units 1 and 2) relating to Determining the Value of Pearson's Correlation Coefficient. I look at what Pearson's Correlation Coefficient is and what it's used for before showing you how to find it. Whilst there is a really gross formula, it's good to know that your CAS can find it for you really easily. I show how to using a worked example and full CAS instructions all explained in an easy to understand way.
