9780078020537: Essentials of Business Statistics (Irwin Statistics)

The primary goal of Essentials of Business Statistics is to illustrate an accurate view of business statistics in a way that students can easily understand. This is achieved in the following ways:

  • New statistical topics and tools are introduced by using continuing case studies. This approach helps to alleviate student anxiety in learning new concepts and enhances overall comprehension
  • Streamlined and clarified coverage of graphical and numerical methods
  • New graphically based procedures for finding confidence intervals and performing hypothesis tests
  • Increased emphasis on Excel and MINITAB with improved and updated step-by-step instructions in the end of chapter material
  • Connect Business Statistics homework management

Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.

In 1996, she was named one of Oxford’s Citizens of the Year for her work with Habitat for Humanity and for organizing annual Sonia Kovalevsky Mathematical Sciences Days for area high school girls.

He received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois in 1971, and in the late 1970s with the advent of personal computers, he combined his interest in statistics and computers to write one of the first personal computer statistics packages?MICROSTAT. Over the past 20 years, MICROSTAT has evolved into MegaStat, which is an Excel add-in statistics program. In 1999 he wrote an Excel book (Essentials: Excel 2000 Advanced) and has done work in neural networks, spreadsheet simulation, and statistical analysis for many research projects.

He (with Professor Bowerman) has written several articles advocating this approach. He has also given presentations on this subject at meetings such as the Joint Statistical Meetings of the American Statistical Association and the Workshop on Total Quality Management: Developing Curricula and Research Agendas (sponsored by the Production and Operations Management Society). Professor O’Connell received an M.S. degree in Decision Sciences from Northwestern University in 1973, and he is currently a member of both the Decision Sciences Institute and the American Statistical Association.
