le86 Keystroke Guide for Statistics To enter lists of data and do statistical calculations Names of are shown in brackets eg ENTER Names of menu choices are shown in capital letters e g EDIT Names of functions are shown in double quotes e g quotOneVaquot Names of variables are shown in single quotes 6 g 39Al39 To create a new list of data To enter the statistics mode hit the 2nd key then the STAT key second use of the key Choose EDIT on the menu hit the F2 key Move cursor to top of screen use the UP ARROW then move to the right use the RIGHT ARROW until you come to a blank column Don39t enter data into the xStat yStat or fStat columns if you want to save the lists Choose a name like 39A39 for the list and type it in you will already be in alpha mode at that point Hit the ENTER key If you get an error message choose another name like 39Al39 or any name Enter the data by scrolling down with the DOWN ARROW or the ENTER key When done entering data simply hit the EXIT key To find the mean and standard deviation etc Reenter the statistics mode as above in order to get the main stat menu Choose CALC on the menu F1 key Choose the quotOneVaquot function on the secondary menu F1 key again Then type the name of the list you created You will have to hit the ALPHA key rst Hit ENTER The screen will now show the statistical results I x bar is the sample mean Ex is the sum of the data 2x2 is the sum of the squares of the data SX is the sample standard deviation 039 x is the population standard deviation You will also see the median and the quartiles etc as you scroll down TI86 Keystroke Guide 32 To nd the line or curve that best ts a scatterplot of data involvingmatched pairs of data Enter two lists of paired data as above named eg 39A39 and 39B39 where 39A39 is the variable that you would plot on the horizontal axis and 39B39 is the variable you would plot on the vertical axis Re enter the statistics mode as above in order to get the main stat menu Choose CALC on the menu F 1 key quot To get a straight line of best t choose the quotLinRquot function on the secondary menu F3 key Or if you want a different kind of curve to model the data choose quotLnRquot logarithmic quotEprquot exponential PerH for any power function x n quotSinRquot sine wave quotLgstRquot logiStic curve quotP2Regquot quadratic function quotP3Regquot cubic function etc Then type the names of the lists you created separated by a comma So your screen should now read quotLinR ABquot with the horizontal variable variable rst Hit ENTER as The screen will now show the statistical results for linear regression yab x where the slope is 39b39 and the intercept is 39a39 a b corr This is the correlation between A and B which shows how good the straight line fit is to the data Values close to i1 show a good correlation and the model is useful To graph the scatterplot of data Enter the statistics mode in order to get the main stat menu Choose PLOT on the menu F 3 key Choose PLOTl on the new menu F1 key Or choose PLOT2 or PLOT3 Turn that plot ON hit ENTER Scroll down once with the DOWN ARROW Hit ENTER in order to choose thef39sCatterplot format Type the name you made up for the horizontal variable e g 39A39 Hit ENTER Type the name you made up for the vertical variable e g 39839 Hit ENTER Choose the mark that shows the data points then hit ENTER Hit EXIT twice to return to the general screen 39 Enter the graphing mode hit GRAPH quotyxquot hit F1 The plot that you activated should now show as highlighted Deselect any other functions that show in your quotyxquot list I Change the x and y limits in the WINDOW of your screen in order to see all of the points Display the scatterplot by choosing GRAPH hit 2 F5 To graph the line of best Enter the graphing mode hit GRAPH Choose quotyx quotquot hit F1 39 Type in the equation that the calculator agave earlier In the case of linear regression you want to have ylab x Finally graph both thescatterplot and the regression line or curve
