    This is a first module on linear models and it concentrates on modelling the relationship between a continuous
    response variable and one or more continuous explanatory variables. Linear models are very widely used in
    almost every field of business, economics, science and industry where quantitative data are collected. They
    are also the basis for several more advanced statistical techniques covered in Level 6 modules. This module is
    concerned with both the theory and applications of linear models and covers problems of estimation, inference
    and interpretation. Graphical methods for model checking will be discussed and various model selection
    techniques introduced. Computer practical sessions, in which the Minitab statistical package is used to
    perform the necessary computations and on which the continuous assessment is based, form an integral part
    of the module.
