Overview

Elementary Data Analysis by Meehan and Warner introduces students to Microsoft Excel spreadsheets as a tool to be used in Introductory Statistics courses. For years professors have relied on specialized statistical software like SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) in statistics and research methods courses, but computer technology has become ubiquitous and spreadsheets more popular. This easy to use workbook demonstrates that by utilizing a familiar program such as Excel, students can concentrate more on statistical concepts and outcomes and less on the mechanics of the software. Even for students who are not familiar with spreadsheets, they can learn statistical analysis easier with Excel than with specialized software, and this workbook takes them through step by step.
