For the lab/experimentation course in physics depts. and/or any course in physics, chemistry, geology, etc. with a lab component focusing on data and error analysis. Designed to help science students process data without lengthy and boring computations, this text/disk package provides useful algorithms and programs that allow students to do analysis more quickly than was previously possible. Using a "learn by doing" approach, it provides simple, handy rules for handling data and estimating errors - both by graphical and analytic methods -without long discussions and involved theoretical derivations.

This book/disk package provides simple, handy rules and useful algorithms and programs for handling data and estimating errors -- both by graphical and analytic methods. It features unique programs for explicit, immediate use for many different pocket calculators and computers -- e.g., for estimating errors in correctly weighted regression: linear, log, exponential, exponential with counts, and power law fits. Covers: Error Analysis for One Variable; Error Analysis for More than One Variable; Finding Relations between Variables; and Using Trigonometric and Exponential Functions in the Laboratory. Provides an accompanying disk (for MAC and Windows 95) -- with Excel™ worksheets for Data Fits, cT Error Analysis Programs, Pascal, and BASIC programs. Includes error analysis programs for mean, standard deviation for grouped data; weighted and unweighted linear and unweighted linear regression. For scientists and engineers.
