— This image just caught my eye because of the yellows.
The next posts will build through:
1. A consideration of linear regression ideas;
2. Linear regression steps in R;
3. The groundwork for an extension of regression to mixed-effects modelling;
4. Mixed-effects modelling in R.
I will return to some steps repeatedly over time.
