Understanding basic statistics is essential for the behavioral science student. Understanding statistics involves knowing how to analyze, interpret, and make decisions about data collected from empirical research. Data collection is the foundation of science and statistics are the set of tools we use to make sense of the data.

Why Use Computer Spreadsheets to Understand and Perform Statistical Procedures?   The traditional approach to teaching and learning statistics involved the use of chalkboards, paper and pencil, and perhaps a hand-held calculator. The result was a computationally demanding, effortful, and unfortunately error-prone and frustrating experience for many students.  Understanding Basic Statistics with Spreadsheets directly addresses this challenge by teaching statistics in the context of computer spreadsheets:  a format that many students will find familiar and applicable to their future careers.
