Homework 04: Nonparametric Regression

In this homework, you will implement three nonparametric regression algorithms in R, Matlab,
or Python. Here are the steps you need to follow:
1. Read Section 8.8 from the textbook.
2. You are given a univariate regression data set, which contains 272 data points about the
duration of the eruption and waiting time between eruptions for the Old Faithful geyser in
Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA (https://www.yellowstonepark.com/thingsto-do/about-old-faithful), in the file named hw04_data_set.csv.
3. Divide the data set into two parts by assigning the first 150 data points to the training set
and the remaining 122 data points to the test set.
4. Learn a regressogram by setting the bin width parameter to 0.37 and the origin parameter
to 1.5. Draw training data points, test data points, and your regressogram in the same
figure. Your figure should be similar to the following figure.
5. Calculate the root mean squared error (RMSE) of your regressogram for test data points.
The formula for RMSE can be written as
!∑ (\$%&\$’%) *+,-+ ) %./
0+,-+
.
Your output should be similar to the following sentence.

Regressogram = RMSE is 5.9626 when h is 0.37
6. Learn a running mean smoother by setting the bin width parameter to 0.37. Draw training
data points, test data points, and your running mean smoother in the same figure. Your
figure should be similar to the following figure.
7. Calculate the RMSE of your running mean smoother for test data points. Your output
should be similar to the following sentence.
Running Mean Smoother = RMSE is 6.0890 when h is 0.37
8. Learn a kernel smoother by setting the bin width parameter to 0.37. Draw training data
points, test data points, and your kernel smoother in the same figure. Your figure should
be similar to the following figure.
9. Calculate the RMSE of your kernel smoother for test data points. Your output should be
similar to the following sentence.
Kernel Smoother = RMSE is 5.8744 when h is 0.37

What to submit: You need to submit your source code in a single file (.R file if you are using R,
.m file if you are using Matlab, or .py file if you are using Python) and a short report explaining
your approach (.doc, .docx, or .pdf file). You will put these two files in a single zip file named as
STUDENTID.zip, where STUDENTID should be replaced with your 7-digit student number.
How to submit: Submit the zip file you created to Blackboard. Please follow the exact style
mentioned and do not send a zip file named as STUDENTID.zip.
