Linear regression analysis program for DM41(L)
Had a little fun this morning bashing out a program for the DM41 that I can use in my lab.
EDIT: CODE REMOVED BECAUSE BETTER CODE IS POSTED BELOW.
Edited to add:
I've just written a more sophisticated program for the error estimates. It estimates far lower errors, which might be a good thing by some measures but in a highschool laboratory I actually prefer the errors this program produces, so I'm sticking with it. Yes, it overestimates errors in a rather clunky way, but they are close to estimates made manually from a graph.

Re: Linear regression analysis program for DM41(L)
A couple of lab programs for your DM41(L), if you're interested. These all use the default stats register numbers. Some of these programs use registers 0104, but do not clear the registers after their use.
GRD finds the gradient of the X and Y data stored in the stats registers
INTRCPT finds the yintercept of the X and Y data stored in the stats registers
PMCC finds the Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient of the X and Y data stored in the stats registers
STERROR estimates the standard error of the X and Y data stored in the stats registers using the PMCC
STATS just executes the programs above in order to display the gradient, standard error, error in gradient, intercept, standard error (again) and error in intercept sequentially, requiring a R/S press betwixt each. Leaves the gradient on the X register, the intercept on the Y register and the standard error of the regression on the Z register
BEEPER plays a tone every X seconds, so that measurements can be taken at regular times without having to keep an eye on a stopwatch or timer. Accuracy is iffy, but it is good enough for a high school lab. Can accept decimal seconds, doesn't need integer values
OSCILLS asks how many oscillations to time for, then each press of the R/S key increases the counter until that number is met. At that point, a tone sounds (so you don't have to watch the screen) to indicate you have counted the appropriate number of oscillations. After this, presses of R/S display the total time expired and the time period of the oscillations. With time periods less than a second it can be iffy. Leaves the time period on the X register and the total time on the Y register
STDEV estimates the standard deviation in X and Y from the stat registers, then leaves the standard deviation of X on the X register and of Y on the Y register
I also think it's handy to ASN the SW to a key too, as well as the above programs, for use in the lab. Hope you find them useful!

Maybe you could choose a different name for the label, in order to differentiate it from the internal GRAD[ians] command?keithdalby wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 7:45 amA couple of lab programs for your DM41(L), if you're interested.

Re: Linear regression analysis program for DM41(L)
Good point. I never use gradians so it doesn't affect me, but feel free to change it if you wish to use it for your own purposesakaTB wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 8:27 amMaybe you could choose a different name for the label, in order to differentiate it from the internal GRAD[ians] command?keithdalby wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 7:45 amA couple of lab programs for your DM41(L), if you're interested.

EDITED TO ADD: I've gone through and changes it from GRAD to GRD. Thanks for the advice.

Re: Linear regression analysis program for DM41(L)
I tried using the DM41 Programming Tool to convert the listing to a file I could send to the 41. I get an error in line 1, LBL GRAD. I tried changing it to LBL GRD but it didn't help. Does anyone know what's going on?

Re: Linear regression analysis program for DM41(L)
Thanks for responding so quickly! I found the problem. The converter needs quotes around labels. I didn't add them so all lines referring to labels were in error. Also the listing here uses x for multiply. The converter uses *.akaTB wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 10:59 amJust tried with the updated version and it didn't give me any error.toml_12953 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 10:55 amI tried using the DM41 Programming Tool to convert the listing to a file I could send to the 41.

Re: Linear regression analysis program for DM41(L)
Ah, I see. The first code from the original post was typed by hand. The rest of the code was spat out by the decoder, so the labels are correctly given.toml_12953 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:03 amThanks for responding so quickly! I found the problem. The converter needs quotes around labels.
You're very welcome. I'm sorry they are so crudely coded.

Re: Linear regression analysis program for DM41(L)
Right, after a bit of revising statistics and digging deeper, I've conjured up the following two equations to give standard deviations of slopes and intercepts for straight lines:
(Notation, m=gradient  stored in register 01, c=intercept  stored in register 02. Statistics registers have their default numbers)
(Credit to here for the statistics help: http://pages.mtu.edu/~fmorriso/cm3215/U ... resFit.pdf)
EDIT TO ADD: ARRRRGGG, about half way through the second line of the \sigma m function theres a rcl 16 that pushes a number over the top of the four stacks. Need to rewrite it to avoid stack overflow. Sorry for getting your hopes up (he says, shouting into the abyss because nobody really cares)
And RPNed it:
So now I have to throw it at the DM41 and see if it works. I've written a spreadsheet that uses a crude Monte Carlo method to estimate errors in gradients and interprets, and I'm really hoping this will agree. I'll let you know when I've had a chance to key it in.(Notation, m=gradient  stored in register 01, c=intercept  stored in register 02. Statistics registers have their default numbers)
