Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is the classic textbook for teaching statistics. This textbook shows students how to produce and interpret data from real-world contexts, guiding them through the type of data gathering and analysis that working statisticians do every day. With this phenomenally successful approach developed by David Moore and George McCabe, statistics is more than just a collection of techniques and formulas. Instead, students develop a way of thinking about data with a focus on problem-solving that helps them understand concepts and master statistical reasoning. Part of the best-selling Moore family of statistics books, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is designed for a two-semester ‘introduction to statistics’ course and offers a rigorous introduction to the subject. This textbook is available on LaunchPad, which combines an interactive ebook with multimedia content and assessment tools, including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing. See ‘Instructor Resources’ and ‘Student Resources’ for further information.

An easy-to-use software package with excellent graphical capabilities, Excel is an ideal way to teach and learn statistics at the introductory level. By organizing data into spreadsheets, Excel allows for easy analysis and graphic exploration. Its versatility, convenience, and reliability make it an attractive alternative to specialized statistical software. This manual was written specifically for using Excel with David Moore and George McCabe's Introduction to the Practice of Statistics, Fifth Edition (IPS) - a text that advocates using statistical software to free students from computations, allowing them to focus on the more practical matters of data gathering and analysis. No prior knowledge of the software is necessary. The manual provides a detailed introduction to Excel in the context of IPS and follows the text chapter by chapter to show how to use Excel to work through specific examples and exercises. In addition, the author developed add-in macros to assist in creating boxplots and normal quantile plots, a capability that does not exist in standard Excel. The macros are available on the textbook companion Web sit and can be downloaded and used on your own computer. This manual is compatible with Excel 2000 (Windows) and Excel 2001 (Macintosh), and the code successfully operates under all subsequent versions of the software, It is also easily adaptable for students using eXcel 97 (Windows) or Excel 98 (Macintosh). - Back cover.
