Book description
All statistical concepts are supported by a large number of examples using data encountered in real life situations; and the text illustrates how the statistical packages MINITAB®, Microsoft Excel ®, and JMP® may be used to aid in the analysis of various data sets. The text also covers an appropriate and understandable level of the design of experiments. This includes randomized block designs, one and twoway designs, Latin square designs, factorial designs, response surface designs, and others. This text is suitable for a one or twosemester calculusbased undergraduate statistics course for engineers and scientists, and the presentation of material gives instructors flexibility to pick and choose topics for their particular courses.
