Computer Assignments These will be collected and graded. What are the assignments designed to teach? In part, they are designed to teach you the commands you need to perform common statistical procedures. Minitab Handbook problems often have a deeper point to make. If it seems that you are using the same commands over and over again in these problems, it is because the problems were assigned with the deeper point in mind, not the commands.

Details regarding Computer Assignments No late assignments will be accepted. But, I will forgive the first assignment you fail to hand in. Or, if you hand in all the assignments, I will drop the one with the lowest percentage grade. You will be required to edit your computer output to make it easier to read and interpret. ( P.S. This is a useful real-world skill .)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
