Lecture Slides: Calculating the Pearson r Correlation (Study Hours and GPA)

The goal of this PowerPoint is to work through the step-by-step process of hand calculating a Person Correlation. The slides start with the formula involved and then a sample problem is presented. It is designed for you to have the class solve the problem along with you as you advance through the slides and animation. Students will calculate the correlation coefficient, describe it, and determine if it is significant.

This presentation will take approximately 20 minutes to complete if you have the students work along with you.
