STUDENTS LEARN HOW TO SUMMARIZE DATA AND HOW TO MAKE APPROPRIATE DECISIONS BASED ON DATA. Course Website with Current Announcements: www.stat.ufl.edu/~mmeece/sta2023summer.htmlRequired Supplies: •Lab Workbook for Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data •Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Databy Alan Agresti and Christine Franklin 1stedition, Pearson, 2007. You may purchase the full book or the Volume 1 portion. If you plan on taking STA 3024, you would be better off purchasing the full book. If you are not planning on taking STA 3024, it is cheaper to just purchase Volume 1. (Note: Some of the USED Volume I textbooks have incorrect tables on the inside front and back covers. You can download the corrected covers from the homepage of E-Learning. )•Scientific Calculatorthat has some basic statistical functions: mean and standard deviation. Many inexpensive calculators (around $10 to $15) have these functions; check the manual or look for the following symbols: x-bar and either s or σn-1. All of the more expensive graphing calculator have them as well, but it is not necessary to buy one of them for this class. •H-ITT radio remote which can be purchased at any of the Gainesville bookstores. Suggested: •Minitab computer program: We will be using Minitab output in class. You may want to use the program to help you work out homework problems. Minitab can be found on the CIRCA lab computers, purchased online for $99.99 new at www.e-academy.com/minitab, downloaded for free for 30 days at www.e-academy.com/minitab, or rent a copy of the software for a semester for $29.99 at www.e-academy.com/minitab.
