And they haven’t improved with age, now that you can barely remember what you learned in high school.
And yet… they show up so often in data analysis.
If you don’t quite remember what they are and how they work, they can make the statistical methods that use them seem that much more obtuse.
So we’re going to take away that fog of confusion about exponents and logs and how they work.
We’ll explain the logic and algebra of logs in plain English. By the end of this webinar, you’ll intuitively understand:
- What they are, really
- How they work
- Why they are so useful in certain statistical applications
We’ll also review a couple of those applications — log transformations and log and logistic link functions, log-likelihoods — and see how the nature of logs affects interpretations of those statistics.
