Dear JMP® User,

Happy New Year! There is no better time than now to set your training goals for 2010. Whether you are just beginning to use JMP software and need an introduction to JMP or you are an experienced JMP user and want a fresh perspective about designing experiments, we have the course for you. A full January-June schedule is available for you to choose from.

If you would like to eliminate travel expenses and have an instructor focus on your particular business needs, you would benefit from our on-site training option. On-site training is particularly valuable when you need group training.

Wishing you all a very happy and successful 2010!

Best regards,
Heath Rushing
JMP Training Manager

Instructor Highlight
Laura Ryan is originally from Alabama but now resides in Raleigh, NC. She has master’s degrees in math education from Duke University and applied statistics from the University of Alabama. She became a JMP instructor in 2006 and has consistently received some of the highest instructor ratings for her ability to convey information. In addition to teaching JMP courses, Laura revises JMP courses, mentors contract instructors, and works with a local high school to develop a hands-on, real-world statistics curriculum with an emphasis on JMP. She also designs and delivers courses in our business intelligence curriculum. The most enjoyable part of her job is helping her students understand difficult topics and teaching them how to apply JMP to their lines of work. In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her husband (who is also on the SAS team) and her two-year-old son. She loves the outdoors (running, biking, hiking, skiing, and even yard work) and spends time volunteering for her church and the Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO).

Tips and Tricks
There are three kinds of JMP Data Types. We all remember Character and Numeric, but do not forget about the Row State. Use the Row State to provide additional insights about your data that were not initially obvious.

Use Fit Y by X to generate this plot: Sales → Y, Response and Advertising → X, Factor. Select OK.


There is no apparent relationship between Sales and Advertising. Now right-click in the graph, select Row Legend… → Date. In the Colors: pane, select Blue to Gray to Red and OK.


Date is continuous, so another visual dimension has been added. Clearly, Sales has increased over time, from about $350 to $800; however, Advertising has not significantly increased over time. This factor fluctuates between $85 and $94 within the time frame.
