Using StatCrunch in Statistics Courses

Presenter

Stacy Thrall, Mathematics Instructor, GPC

 

Description

 

Many college statistics classes are transitioning from using the TI-83/84 calculator for performing data analysis to using statistical analysis software, such as Minitab or StatCrunch.  This innovative approach gives the student experience and exposure to large data sets and the technology that they will encounter in the real world.  The presenter will be showing how to perform some basic data analysis using Pearsonís StatCrunch from within the MyMathLab suite.  The presentation will give statistics tutors a first look at the software, so that they may be willing to assist students whose classes are using data analysis programs in place of the calculator in the future.

Words, Words, Words!
