# CURM Sixth Meeting, 10/7/2008

## Agenda

- Last time: we had -- on an individual basis -- a look at non-linear regression, and how it works.

- What issues have arisen so far for you? Anything worth mentioning now?
- Grayson?
- Katie?

- I know that Katie has made some progress on the most recent Problem of the Week -- please share!

- Let's apply the technique described in our an example of how to do non-linear regression to some examples:
- the same data set we used last week for our linear (and transformed linear) regression exercise, from the QELP website
- Our sample data set focuses on the question How do linear dimensions of an animal correlate with mass?
- Results of running the regression

- Another example: The Alpine Species Project

- the same data set we used last week for our linear (and transformed linear) regression exercise, from the QELP website

- Here's a new Problem of the Week! Let's spend a little time with it....

- Now: let's plan out an attack on the modeling that we need to do for the Wasp project.
