Essential Statistics in Business and Economics https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260239500.jpeg 3 9781260239508 The Third Edition of Essential Statistics in Business and Economics was written to meet four distinct objectives. Objective 1: Communicate the Meaning of Variation in a Business Context Variation exists everywhere in the world around us and successful businesses know how to measure variation. This text shows how businesses know how to tell when variation should be responded to and when it should be left alone. Objective 2: Use Realistic Business Applications The text offers examples, case studies, and problems from current research or real applications whenever possible. Hypothetical data are used when it seems the best way to illustrate a concept. Objective 3: Incorporate Current Statistical Practices and Offer Practical Advice With the increased reliance on computers and data analytics, statistics practitioners have changed the way they use statistical tools. The text shows the current practices and explains why they are used the way they are, and tells you when each technique should not be used. Objective 4: Provide More In-Depth Explanation of the Why and Let the Software Take Care of the How Today's technology makes it easier to summarize and communicate with data than ever before. The text demonstrates easily mastered techniques with commonly available software. The authors emphasize the idea of risks in decision making and that risks should be quantified and considered in business decisions.

Algorithmic Problems

are auto-graded exercises that use different numeric values each time a problem is served up to the student. This gives students practice in working a problem several times; they get the same question, but with different numbers each time. This also deters cheating because each student in a class or lab receives a slightly different version of the problem and corresponding answer.

BStat Prep Modules:

These assignable and auto-graded modules are available in Connect and cover basic Math, Statistics and Excel topics. They were designed to help instructors ensure that all students have the same level of preparedness in the course.

MegaStat®

is a full-feature Excel statistical analysis add-in that is available on the MegaStat website at www.mhhe.com/megastat for purchase.

Video tutorials and a User's Guide are included.

Guided Examples:

These narrated, animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance.
