Core Statistical Concepts with Excel® connects statistical concepts to applications with Excel® using practical research examples. The text jointly promotes an understanding of Excel® and a deeper knowledge of core concepts through practice. Authors Gregory J. Privitera and Darryl Mayeaux provide students step-by-step instruction for using Excel® software as a useful tool not only to manage but also analyze data—all through the use of key themes, features, and pedagogy: an emphasis on student learning, a focus on current research, and integration of Excel® to introduce statistical concepts.
