Tool to understand sampling distributions: Play with sampling distributions

Guide to using Minitab and Excel (WARNING: Large file ~ 11 Mb)

- Statistics for Business and Economics, 12th ed. McClave, Benson, Sincich. Get the CD (chapters 13 and 14 and data sets are on it).
- MathXL access for doing homework assignments. Instructions in pdf form. The Course ID for your course is: XL1R‐F1HZ‐5020‐8932
- A good scientific calculator; graphic calculators and cellphones will not be allowed in exams.
- Student Solutions Manual (optional)
- Minitab License (optional)

- understand the importance of and distinguish between random sampling and random assignment
- use a two-sample procedure (test or confidence interval) to make inference about two populations
- distinguish between independent and dependent samples
- compare the results of a hypothesis test to the results of a confidence interval
- compare three or more populations using ANOVA techniques
- use a Chi-square test to make inference about population proportions and categorical variables
- calculate and interpret regression equation estimates
- assess the fit of a regression model to a set of data
- detect violations of regression model assumptions required for valid inference
- statistically compare two regression models on the basis of their fit to a set of data
- build multiple regression models and interpret their parameters
- use a regression model to estimate/predict a value of y for a new set of predictors
- formulate an ANOVA as a regression analysis
- use statistical software to perform data analyses
- interpret the output from software
- use the appropriate data analysis method for a given problem

We will emphasize Minitab and Excel for our statistical analysis, it might be wise to explore SPSS on your own. 101 Ewing is only open during lab hours. You can access software for statistical analysis at the computer labs: 111 and 113 MacDowell Hall, Smith Hall Computing Site, B&E Lab in Purnell.

Download minitab yourself. onthehub.com/minitab allows access for free for 30 days or a longer term purchase.
