Polynomial Regression Example 1 (R)

Notes and Considerations

See the attached file "Montgomery Polynomial Regression.doc" for how-to screenshots.
Based on Example 3-1 in Montgomery (5 Ed).

In the residual diagnostics, notice the potential pattern (perhaps quadratic and cubic) in the plot of residuals vs. Cotton Weight %.
This data is also modeled using a One-Way ANOVA approach.  See (example)

See also the StatSoft blog entry for Polynomial Regression.
