Statistics by Walter Antoniotti is a non- calculus based set of course notes for people who want to learn the material covered in a traditional comprehensive college statistics course. <br/>Each learning unit begins with a concise topic outline (usually 2 pages). Keeping descriptive material to a few pages makes learning difficult concepts easier. <br/>Each topic outline is followed by a one- or two-page practice set and one or two pages of Quick Questions. The order of practice problems follow the topic outline so students need look back only 2-pages to about the same page location of the topic outline to get help when doing a problem. This format is followed with Quick Questions. <br/>Statistics is divided into four parts. Each part ends with a formula review and a test. <br/>Part VI entitled The Professor's Answer Book provides complete solutions to all practices set problems, Quick Questions, and test questions. These complete solutions help a student understand difficult concepts. <br/>Data sets are provided for those using SPSS, StatQuest, and MiniTab. A companion book, Excel Statistics Lab Manual is written in Excel worksheets and contains the problems and data sets for all the problems in the Statistic book. Excel directions are provided below the problems so students can easily use Excel to do the arithmatic, do an analysis, and compare their analysis with the author's which is contained in the following worksheet. Links to Internet tuitorials are provided for most topics and there is a special section of writting a research paper links.Sun, 29 Jan 2006 08:00:00 GMTWalter Antoniotti 21st Century Learning ProductsStatistics Formula Reviews

This laboratory introduces students to the basics of the Minitab software. Students make use of a basic example (water consumption and temperature) to introduce students to manipulation of data, calculation of descriptive statistics, creation of histograms, boxplots and scatterplots. Students are asked to hand in the results they have produced. Accompanying documents give model solutions.Fri, 28 Jan 2005 08:00:00 GMTGinger RowellStatistics Every Writer Should Know

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82334
This exercise will help the user understand the logic and procedures of hypothesis testing. To make best use of this exercise, the user should know how to use a z table to find probabilities on a normal distribution, and how to calculate the standard error of a mean. Relevant review materials are available from the links provided. The user will need a copy of the hypothesis testing exercise (link is provided), a table for the standardized normal distribution (z), and a calculator. The user will be asked several questions and will be given feedback regarding their answers. Detailed solutions are provided, but users should try to answer the questions on their own before consulting the detailed solutions. The end of the tutorial contains some "thought" questions.Thu, 14 Oct 2004 07:00:00 GMTDale Berger Claremont Graduate UniversityBinomial Distribution
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80319
<p>This tutorial is designed to give students practice in calculating basic probabilities using the binomial distribution. The applet gives students short problem descriptions that require a binomial probability to solve. The user is then prompted to follow a step by step process to find the probability. Users must answer a step correctly before the applet will allow them to move onto the next step. The page also gives further exercises that allow the user to think about binomial distributions more deeply and gives a link to more detailed information about the binomial distribution.

<p><span>Optimal classification of cases into two groups must consider the costs of the different types of errors, the benefits of different correct decisions, as well as the base rates for the two populations. The WISE Util applet calculates classification rules to maximize classification utility. The program takes into account population base rates and means and variances of the test score distributions, and the benefit of a correct classification into each of the two groups and the cost of an incorrect classification into each of the two groups. The program interactively displays the model’s underlying weighted normal distributions, cutting scores which designate predicted group membership, expected classification accuracy, and expected utility.</span></p>Sun, 05 Aug 2012 21:40:50 GMTMichael Healy; Dale Berger Claremont Graduate University; Claremont Graduate UniversityClassifying Statistics Problems

""There seems to be a pervasive notion that "you can prove anything with statistics." This is only true if you use them improperly. In this workshop we'll discuss things that people often overlook in their data analysis, and ways people sometimes "bend the rules" of statistics to support their viewpoint. We will also discuss ways you can make sure your own statistics are clear and<br />accurate. I will include examples from medicine, education, and industry."
