# Level Up: Linear Regression in Python – Part 7

In the seventh lesson of the series we’ll discuss some methods for comparing linear regression models. In the process, we’ll learn about the problem of overfitting and investigate some of the pros and cons of various evaluation methods (such as R-squared, adjusted R-squared, log likelihood, AIC, and BIC). We’ll also continue to practice our Python…

If you’d like to watch a session live, follow the Codecademy YouTube channel. We’ll be live again on Tuesday, July 13 at 11am EDT to summarize all of the topics we’ve covered over the past seven weeks. You can join that session here.

Finally, if you want even more linear regression content, you can sign up for the Linear Regression in Python interactive course this series was based on. This course was developed by Sophie and has many more quizzes, projects, and helpful nuggets that we can’t fit into our streams!

## Level Up: Linear Regression in Python – Part 1

Linear regression is a machine learning technique for modeling continuous outcomes. It is used for both prediction and data analysis in a variety of different fields. It is also the basis for a number of other machine learning models, including logistic regression and poisson regression. For anyone who is interested in learning more about data… code-for-a-living June 19, 2021

## Level Up: Linear Regression in Python – Part 5

In the fifth lesson of the series we’ll learn how to build more flexible linear models by adding interaction and polynomial terms. We’ll fit and inspect our models both mathematically and visually to understand how they work. In the process, we’ll continue to practice our Python skills and discuss some of the merits (and drawbacks)… code-for-a-living May 29, 2021

## Level Up: Linear Regression in Python – Part 2

In the second lesson of the series, we’ll learn how to fit and interpret a simple linear regression with a categorical predictor. We’ll use a simulated dataset to predict the amount of time someone will spend on a website based on the browser they are using. We’ll also predict the rental prices of NYC apartments…
